Cooper Works (JCW), with JCW Valve Si­lencer Sys­tem and the JCW Car­bon Tailpipe Fin­ish­ers, the car was a beast – it pow­ered up ef­fort­lessly on the road, ab­sorbed cor­ners steadily and dealt with high speed at ease. It was the per­fect car to end the day. mak­ing it fun to drive in the city land­scape.

Again, to max­imise our ex­pe­ri­ence in the MINI cars, we went for a track ses­sion at the Malacca In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor­sports Cir­cuit (MIMC). Sim­i­lar to the me­dia drive, this was my de­but on a track too. We went two laps, each in the Cooper S 3 Door “Wired” and the Cooper S 5 Door re­spec­tively.

Driv­ing on the race track was a con­sid­er­ably dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence. The twists and turns de­mand proper han­dling of the car and MINI, a brand that is fa­mous for its go-kart feel, did not dis­ap­point. Even for a first-timer like me, the car was easy to han­dle, gripped well on cor­ners and sped up with no trou­ble. Mean­while, un­der the hands of ex­pe­ri­enced driv­ers, it un­leashed its full po­ten­tial whereby it took some only slightly more than two min­utes to fin­ish both laps.

Through­out the trip, I was lucky enough to en­joy the MINI cars in its most or­ganic form. Be it cruis­ing down south or com­pet­ing on the track, they helped me to dis­cover a new di­men­sion to driv­ing. In the right car, with the right specs, driv­ing can bring ab­so­lute plea­sure to one.
