Gabe has already reported on this, but one line here has me wondering…
No doubt it will be a spectacular event, but it’s also just one part of a still greater extravaganza called MINI United. As well as watching the racing, MINI owners will be able to drive on the Misano track, be taken round by professionals, visit a market full of MINI accessories, listen to live music, go to the cinema, enjoy the dance tent, go for helicopter rides and experience other japes and wheezes – or, if it all gets too much, wander down to the beach which is a 15-minute stroll from the circuit.
I have to ask; What are japes and wheezes? To me it doesn’t sound very pleasant and I would probably avoid either of those at all costs. Of course I know I’m wrong, which is why I am asking those of you more familiar with the British dialect to step in and help out.
