Random Snap>> Speedhunters Mini On The Nordschleife

I was quite pleased to see the AMS NOS Energy Drink Evo was sporting a Speedhunters logo at Pikes Peak this past weekend… It’s always cool to have our website repped on street and race cars around the world! I just found out that another car was sporting our logo this past weekend too, thus time a humble Mini track racer at the VLN Endurance race on the Nurburgring. The car was co-driven by the Swede Patrick Soderlund who some of you may remember drove the NFS Speedhunters Porsche at the Dubai 24Hs this past January. He’s also the EA exec who is overseeing the production of the upcoming Need for Speed SHIFT video game.

The car itself isn’t anything to write home about, it could only manage a lap time of 10:29 around the combined Nordscheife/GP Track layout where as the pole time was a 8:15 set by a Ford GT. Soderlund qualified 166 of 190 cars but they managed to finish 102nd overall! That’s a lot of places made up!
