I'll be there, think this is my 5th year in a row. Unfortunately this year they've changed the format and it'll be staring and ending a lot earlier

I don't know what the ground clearance in my STi is, but it can't be much more than what your mini has. And frankly, if you're worried about beating up your front bumper WCR may not be for you.

If you do wind up going, good luck, it really is a blast.

Edit: Here's what my car looked like 2 years ago after hitting the guardrail:
