Woofcast 685: The Loss of a Legend

Starting off with our rememberance of Mr. Paddy Hopkirk. He was a great human that we were all lucky enough to meet and interview. We are still looking for the interview we did we him, but fear it might have been lost to the great server outage of aught nine.

Gabe catches us up on #mtts2022 and thank you to those of you that asked about Todd and I. We really appreciate that. Then, we have a little something to say about the MINI Aceman concept.

Don’t forget Black Roof Radio, the pre show for each episode, available to you 100% free of charge!

Woofcast 680: 2023 MINI Special Editions

Big news this week and we jump right into it! In case you missed it, there are 3 new special editions that MINI announced this week; Countryman Untamed Edition, MINI Resolute Edition for the hardtop and convertible and, quite possibly our favorite, the Clubman Untold Edition. We take as deep a dive as we can on these and our looking forward to seeing this in person soon.

Also from the in-case-you-missed-it files, MINI has a new head of the brand, Stefanie Wurst. As Gabe said, she has an impressive CV. Click over for the official release.

A few other things we mentioned were the Screaming Chicken, which I think would be rad on the bonnet of the Clubman Untold. There is also the madness that is the Car Jumping Competition at Angmering Raceway, in case you missed that. And, yes, the Hoonigan crew put a 1,000 horsepower big block Chevy into a 3rd Gen Camaro.
