Four years ago today, the first MINI GP vehicles were handed over to their owners in a ceremony at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.  This took place a few days before the beginning of MINI Takes the States 2006.

So today we feature the MINI COOPER S WITH JOHN COOPER WORKS GP KIT. brochure.  This glossy, eight-page stapled brochure describes features and specifications for the MINI GP (as the model is better known).

The MINI USA catalog number is JCW GP-0106.
