Happily, MINI USA has created a MINI Takes The States that I hope to be able to enjoy, returning to the original “road trip” roots of fabulous MTTS2006, while giving a nod to the night-club style of MTTS2008 and MU, more popular with WRR organizers than with me 😉
There’s not a lot of detail so far, no indication if there will be nightly events like 2006, or just the parties at each end of the road trip legs – but offering a drive from Atlanta (closest to GPMINI) to Denver, is enough temptation that, after discussion at work, I’ve registered … and hope to actually participate in the drive too!
It’s a bit of a work gamble at the moment, although August is a quiet time for Europe customers, and I can claim to be driving past some of the others! So hopefully I’ll make the drive, and get a few more miles on GPMINI. With luck, meet up with some MINI friends too 🙂
