The “Mini Legend” Paddy Hopkirk, one of the most successful rally drivers of all time, has been confirmed as Grand Marshal for the Watkins Glen Mini Festival! Paddy began winning rally events in 1955, becoming synonymous with the Mini Cooper after winning the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally with co-driver Henry Liddon in a Mini Cooper S, registered as “33 EJB”. That Monte Carlo win was but one event in his illustrious motorsports career, which included fifteen competitive seasons as a Works driver for Standard-Triumph, Rootes, and BMC. Paddy’s incredible driving talent resulted in a series of outright victories in major rallies and races around the world. He was inducted into the Rally Hall of Fame in 2010, and continues to be very involved in motorsports today, both as a brand ambassador for MINI and Mini Sport Ltd, as well as promoting his line of specialty automotive products, regalia, and memorabilia.

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!
