MINi Takes The States 2012 -- Register now!

Ready for the road trip of a lifetime? This year promises to be the best road trip yet! MINI Takes the States 2012 registration starts in April! -- so, mark your calendars and be sure to sign up for an unforgettable rally!
 You can register for more information at the Mini Takes the States 2012 registration site.

For those of you who don’t know, MINI Takes the States happens only once every two years, and in 2010 MTTS drove through a total of 19 sates, covering more than 8,000 miles of motoring adventures and brought together more than 10,000 participants at multiple exciting events scattered across the country.

Owners may also join the caravans as they make their way across the states; or you can spend a few hours at one of the many designated stops along the routes to mingle with drivers, enjoy parties, partake in games and road rallies, and immerse yourself in family fun.

MINI owners have much more than just a car. Owners become part of a passionate community that offers camaraderie and fun driving experiences that you and your family and friends will always remember.

The last MINI Takes The States adventure included music festivals, MINI-Cross driving challenges, road rallies, games for the family, meet-ups, and vendor villages where participants stocked up on MINI gear for themselves and their vehicle.

Check out our Facebook gallery to see photos from a rally that East Bay MINI had as part of the cross-country celebration.

MINi Takes The States 2012 is definitely a do-not-miss event – and be sure to have many miles of motoring adventures with us along the way! Register today.
