In 2013 Mini Cooper will be the featured marque at the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festival (http://grandprixfestival.com/index.html) and also at the vintage races at Watkins Glen International (http://www.theglen.com/). We should have some members that will be interested in this, so it is being posted well in advance. If you are interested, you will need to make your room reservations early. Everything within a few miles of town sells out, sort of like at The Dragon. There are three days of vintage races at the famous Watkins Glen track. Please see the information on the Grand Prix Festival website to get an idea of all the great events that take place. Watkins Glen is located in the finger lakes wine country of upstate New York. The scenery is fantastic and the roads are a lot of fun.
There will be special events for all of the MINI/Mini Cooper entries similar to this one http://grandprixfestival.com/marque.html.
Here are some pictures from 2002 when Mini was last featured http://grandprixfestival.com/gallery_marque_2.html
The sign up form for the Tour de Marque is now available for 2013. Here is the link http://grandprixfestival.com/documents/earlyregistration2013.pdf I know this is really early but this event fills up fast. See the event details for what is included in the $140 fee. I think you will agree that is well worth it.
The information will be updated as it becomes available.
