UK: Mini Minis to be Olympic retrievers

ini has developed three remote controlled electric cars that will be used to return the implements for each of the throwing events to competitors at the 2012 London Olympic Games. « PreviousNext » Getting the javelins, discuses, hammers and shots back to the throwing area at the Olympic Games used to be a manual task – but a car maker has come up with an inventive way of ferrying the objects back to where they were thrown from. Mini has developed three remote controlled electric cars that will be used to return the implements for each of the throwing events to competitors at the 2012 London Olympic Games. The cars – known as ”mini Minis” – are essentially 1:4 scale models of the Mini Cooper hatchback, but instead of being powered by a petrol or diesel combustion engine they use a pint-sized battery pack to power them. Mini says the batteries will last for 35 minutes of continuous use, and take about 80 minutes to completely recharge.
