After a healthy breakfast, they lined up with their beloved car at 8 a.m. - to reach their first destination point: St. Johann's airfield in Tyrol.

Constantly surrounded by: mountains, warm temperatures and sunshine.

To successfully finish the runway's slalom skills and car control were needed. Every second counts, that's why teams had to give their best!

For a quiet and nice lunch break teams met at the Grander Schupfer's Inn.
And after that, went to visit the beautiful Kitzbühels. There they were able to see Kitzbühels' famous steep Streif.

For a beautiful end of the day, they had a BBQ (one of the highlights of the day) with a romantic panoramic view.

At Go-Kart Race presented Andrea - one of our longest-standing MINI guests - all the men in the shadows.
