What happens when you combine midget racing, shifter karting and the European Touring Cup? You get something known as Mitjet, a French-Spanish racing series that pits miniature versions of BMW M6, Porsche 911, Renault Megane and Dodge Viper racers against each other on a road course. The 1,345-lb cars, are built from tubular chassis and powered by 150-hp Yamaha 1300 XJR engines, cost around $30,000 each, making the series a far more affordable proposition for non-viscounts and other English majors. We smell Jalopnik Cup.
