I had the opportunity to interview Luis Parocarpi from Lap Motorsports before he headed south of the border for a Rally in this fine looking Countryman. We talked about the success at Daytona, the challenges of Sebring, a little history and the rally in the desert.

Be sure to follow along with this seasons IMSA racing. Next event is in May and can usually be viewed at imsa.com.

In this episode, named after our man Alex based on his Hammer & Coop name. We spend some time talking about that, of course, along with some other examples of the great, and so not great, work of BSSP. Of course this came up because the marketing shake-up at MINIUSA continues. Gabe joins us for some real in-depth information that you are sure to enjoy.

We did run a bit long this week. Too long to add the interview with Luis Perocarpi, owner of Lap Motorsports. Watch for that early next week to show up in your feed. It was really fun to meet him and talk to him about the races at Daytona, Sebring and the upcoming race at Circuit of the Americas. Plus some cool rally stuff that he is doing this week in a lifted R60 Countryman!

I lied about this week’s show image. I was going to be a cool shot of a classic Mini with a VTEC engine uploaded to our Patreon Community by Mr. Roberts.

Instead, it’s the F60 with bicycles on the roof submitted by our man Brian Dallas. He uploaded this to our facebook page and now it’s the album art for this week’s show. Want us to feature a photo of your MINI? All you have to do is upload it to our Facebook page or do an ‘@’ reply to @whiteroofradio on Twitter or Instagram. You can also upload it to the Patreon page. It’s not a competition gang, I will pick the one I like best and boom!

It’s time to get restocked on your car cleaning supplies, and our friend Axle Grease Coyote has a full line of car care products available at Outmotoring.com. Perfect for restocking your supplies!

Gabe joins in tonight with myself, Todd and Alex. We cover a ton of stuff including Todd’s week with a JCW Convertible, a pretty big shake up at MINIUSA, Gabe’s continued love affair with the Clubman, Alex’s quick thoughts about the new Ferrari and me still thinking the R56 is pretty fall aparty.

That is available to the Patrons of White Roof Radio. You too can be a patron by clicking over to http://www.patreon.com/whiteroofradio.

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, White Roof Radio has kicked off a new year of Podcasting, talking about MINI Coopers like we like to do. Full panel tonight including myself, Todd, Chad, Alex, Gabe and Brian Dallas. Hitting the high points from Motoringfile.com and talking about the new Countryman, which is live in the configurator and showing up at some dealers this week. As an added bonus, we get to hear what the next MotoringFile Company Car is going to be. As you know, Gabe has been completely smitten by the new Clubman and we think you guys will be as excited as we are about what he will be driving next! Finally a note to the affliates, we do go long.

New for 2017, we will be sharing black roof radio whenever possible. Since it will be very raw and unedited (and probably not safe for work), we will be limiting it’s release only to those that have signed up to support us through Patreon. It doesn’t take much to clear this pay wall gang, even a quarter a show gets you in!
