What we're about

Carlisle MINI Motoring Club was formed in Carlisle Pennsylvania by Santiago Gabela and his wife Lois in 2006. 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 450 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!

Let's Go GAWK and MINGLE with all the MINIs

Needs a location

Many of your friends are partaking in Corporate MINIs MINI TAKES the STATES 2022. Some of us...for one reason or another...will not be running with the pack.

This contingent of MTTS 2022 is running right through South Central PA...The Home of Carlisle MINI. What are we going to do about that?

Join us as we Motor to Frederick MD to Gawk and Mingle with the MINIs! This will be happening on a Tuesday morning (you really didn't want to work anyway). Bright eyed and bushy tailed we'll meet at the Sheetz in Gettysburg and (as always) Motor the roads less traveled to the Frederick Fairgrounds. We will carefully blend in with our fellow MINIacs and see what we can see...do what we can do! Should be some great photos and we're sure to spot many other MINIacs that we have traveled with over the years.

After the MTTS MINIs parade off to points South we'll head to breakfast for a refueling.
