What we're about

Carlisle MINI Motoring Club was formed in Carlisle Pennsylvania by Santiago Gabela and his wife Lois over a decade ago. Their first attempt to set up the club and develop an active membership was a slow process. Over the years our little (MINI) club has grown. We now have more than 250 members. One imperative is a love of MINIs. What is a Carlisle MINI Motoring Club member? Whatever YOU want it to be! Our passion for our MINIs is the singular common ground that we all share, aside from that we are all individuals with many other varied interests. We are a loose knit bunch of MINIacs and that's the way we like it! Join us at one of our events...some large...some small, but all with a focus on MINIs and having fun. Now MOTOR ON!

2019 Carlisle MINI Planning Session

Hinkle's Restaurant

Here at Carlisle MINI we are patiently awaiting a clear sign that Spring is just around the corner. By this time in years past CM has already completed our patented Cabin Fever Run. Not so for this year. Every week presents another sort of cold weather event that's not conducive to Productive Motoring. Oh, the humanity! Bring your ideas to this Planning Session...together we can invigorate each other and make 2019 one of Carlisle MINI's best! http://www.hinklesrestaurant.com/ Some of your Fellow Carlisle MINIacs have taken some of this Winter's down time to schedule some upcoming events. Make sure to check our calendar and join us if you can.
