‘Ringmini’ Clubman Estate laps the Nordschleife

If you spend any time watching the goings on at the Nürburgring, especially during Touristenfahrten days, you’ll be familiar with the little blue ‘Ringmini’.

It’s a 1971 Mini Clubman Estate that been fitted with the engine and transmission from a Honda Civic. In short, it’s bloody fast and its owner knows the Ring like the back of his hand.

As this lap around the Nordschleife will attest. It’s a superb bit of footage, with virtually no traffic. The camera mount location also adds to the sensation of speed.
