…Mini will teach you how to drive like a pro?

Mini Driving Lesson

Take it from Mini: Despite what your driver’s ed teacher taught you, 9 and 3 always beats 10 and 2.

In order to help new Mini drivers get the most from the car, and to show off the racability of their line, Mini has put together a pretty thorough collection of introductory pro driving tips on their Mini Racing site.

All the basics are covered, like proper seat position and correct shifting technique, but they even show you some advanced techniques like heel-toe breaking and the proper cornering line.

It might not make you F1 worthy, but unless you’re already driving an F1 car, it’ll probably give you a few tips and tricks that will improve your car skills dramatically.
