MINI Takes the States 2010 start dates

Last month MINI USA announced the date of the main festival in Denver for MINI Takes the States 2010.  However, the dates for the regional rallies to begin have not been announced on the official MINI Takes the States website.

MC² magazine’s website has announced those dates:

At each starting point, MINI owners will gather to participate in auto-cross events and organize themselves into convoys. They will then depart their starting cities and MINIs from each coast will head for Denver. As it is currently planned, the Atlanta and New York rallies will begin on 6 August, with Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco rallies starting on the 7th.

Read all of the details at MC² magazine’s website.
