Agreed - I saw it on Halfway 1 and Rhondda 1. At Rhondda it took about 10 minutes after the penultimate car before the Mini came by.
I also saw it at the finish ramp in Cardiff. It was obviously the last car to go over the ramp, but many people stayed there in the rain just to see the Mini. Whilst all the other cars had just driven up, collected the medal and left, the Mini had a huge celebration. They played the theme song from the original Italian Job movie, confetti cannons went off, and the team sprayed champagne with as much gusto as Solberg had done an hour earlier.
It was lots of fun and very moving at the same time.
