We in the UK cannot compete with those levels of altitude but here's me at the highest café in England...

Similar elevation but a bit harder to get to ;) - bottom of the ski tow at nearby Yad Moss :)

I think I prefer the 'how high can your mini go' interpretation, but unfortunately can't find my own pic to show our car leaving the ground, but this one looks good so I'll share this instead ;-)

Do want to do Minis On Top some day. Not as high as Pikes Peak but a bit more extreme, I think :)

Some great stories in this thread!

Sadly the highest I have ever been in a Mini was probably when I was in my early 20's, but the altitude was more or less sea level. :roll:

It was in november 2009. We had a classic rally at the Col de Turini by night and after it was finished we decided to take our time and we came accross the French Alps :

We climb at the Cold de l'Iseran, which is 2770 meters high (9000 feet) a week before the road was closed for the winter.

A wonderful memory, the roads were stunning at this moment of the year (not a single lycra pants insight !)

Seems really a bit unfair. The highest point in Denmark is the top of the Storbæltsbroen at 254m and is a full 83m above the highest land point at 171m. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
