JULY 4- JULY 15 AN EAST COAST TO WEST COAST MINI RALLY. MINI USA IS DOING THEIR USUAL FRUSTRATING JOB OF RELEASING INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2012 EVENT BUT SOME INFORMATION HAS LEAKED OUT. THIS MAY CHANGE WHEN WE GET THE FINAL VERSION. Starting in New York on July 4th. The rumor is that there will be autocrosses in the following cities: Philadelphia, Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles. It is also rumored that the route will go to the National Harbor on July 4th for fireworks. MOB would like to sponsor a run for C3M to head down to the festivities. (Details still need to be worked out and will be posted as soon as they are firmed up.) The following list of cities and dates was posted on Motoring Alliance and Motoring File. MINI USA said that this is preliminary information and both cities and dates may change! New York 7/4, Washington, DC 7/4, Charlotte, NC 7/5, Nashville, TN 7/6, Louisville, KY 7/7, Chicago, IL 7/8, Omaha, NE 7/9, Denver, CO 7/10, Santa Fe, NM 7/11, Phoenix, AZ 7/12, San Diego, CA 7/13, Los Angeles, CA 7/14-7/15. This information is only meant to give everyone a heads up and may change by the time MINI USA finally releases the final plan.

    Is anyone doing the first leg: NJ - Philly - DC ?

  • Brian N.

    My plans are to do the DC to Louisville portions. I have made reservations at the following hotels. These are the hotels that I have reservations at:
    Aloft Charlotte Uptown - MTTS Host hotel
    Hutton Hotel Nashville - MTTS Host hotel
    Courtyard Marriott Louisville - the MTTS Host hotel was sold out so I chose one that was close.

    The MOB side event does not look like it is going to happen. It would help for planning purposes if everyone that has registered would let us know where they are going to start, where they are going to pick up the MTTS group, and how many cities you are going to do. Right now I am hoping to start in NJ and make it to Louisville. We'll see.
