The MINI got a good blow-out of the cobwebs this weekend – a day-trip to Santa Maria. Total round trip mileage was 736, and about 12 hours travelling time including stops and stuff. Whilst the sport seats aren’t that uncomfortable I was certainly glad to get out of them when we stopped. Sarah performed well, averaged 29.5 mpg over the trip and was, as always, a lot of fun to drive, especially on the LA freeways where the speed limits don’t seem to apply. Only saw 3 other MINIs the whole trip, guess you were all sleeping in?
