    Ok guys you’ve had your Summer fun now it’s time to knuckle down and get on with the Binkster. Enjoying the race car but can’t believe you didn’t test the forward facing camera for field of vision, before the race, and I’m assuming there will be a public enquiry regarding the apparently shoddy standard of bracketery that led to the alarming failure, thought for a minute the Richard had decided to leave the black stuff and perform a bit of motocross on the C1s roof!!! On another matter where’s the funk! Take Care Stay Safe Everyone Regards Dave (I’ll have my Mini back on Thursday)👍👍

    Mate that was a heck of a drive... 19s over 45 mins with traffic, on your first go, absolutely nothing to be ashamed of there. Bit of an art to being passed, mostly I think it's about laughing about how bad they are rather than raging :) Gonna do the C1 24hr race when it happens again? not sure if the regs are *exactly* the same but can't imagine they're much different.

    I was spectating at Cadwell that weekend, though I didn't realise until I was looking through my photos afterwards that you guys were there. P2 is pretty damn impressive considering how little experience you had, and the sheer amount of traffic you had to put up with. Being thrown in with the open class did make for interesting viewing though.

    I have been waiting for you guys to post this video. We do not see much of this sort of thing in my corner of the USA. I tried watching the official BRSCC video for the first race. Sadly, it did not show me much of what I really wanted me to see, so I have elected to stick with the BOM videos and hope you show the races. You did not disappoint. Congratulations on the 2nd place. Not knowing the track, to pull that off is a thing. I look forward to next week's video.

    Thoroughly enjoyed spotting that you fellows have snagged pride of place in the primary photo displayed on the City Car Cup web page, proudly liveried up with daft 'TOTALD' and '69'. To echo many statements on this video though, thoroughly surreal to see the completion of a BOM project. I'm only mildly comforted by the thought that this is only the first race of the season, so there'll undoubtedly be more minor tinkering with the C1 down the line for the rest of the series.

    Great viewing! I would love to see the track ahead better. The front facing camera looking through the windscreen, was just ‘whiting out’ as the picture over exposed. I wasn’t really sure if I would enjoy this episode, I’m used to you cutting and welding bits together. But it was a great on-site to track racing and I really enjoyed it. Thanks.

    After watching this I feel it's a little unfair to the C1 Guys that they have to Compete against much faster vehicles they should separate the class So You can all try to achieve the best times and not get bound up because you have a 325 up your chuff I Felt your Frustration their Good effort and the 96 dislikes are well jealous. what's going on with nick he looks pale and has lost weight. ? hope all is ok Boys. ????.

    Haven't looked through any comments for this, but here's a mad idea: would you charge a reasonable fee for prepping these motors for people to race, if they didn't have the mechanical facilities/abilities? On a general note, it's so great to see Motorsport like this continuing through the 'rona, and am personally surprised at how jazzed I am about a basic car becoming a racing car, despite the lack of power! It's like it regains its dignity as a vehicle in front of our eyes! Watching with all interest and am cheering you on all the way!

    You just have to get a better (straight ahead) camera view. All I could see, most of the time was white, and it was too high. Try putting the camera on the front, in one of the lights maybe. I’m not having a go, seriously, but it sure was frustrating.
