To get the word out about this summer’s MINI Takes the States 2012 cross-country rally, MINI USA has enlisted the help of MINI enthusiasts.  For those people who registered a MINI club on MINI Space’s MINI Club Finder, MINI USA recently sent an email asking for help distributing promotional “save the date” postcards to fellow enthusiasts and MINI motorers.  A package of 400 postcards (pictured) arrived today.

So if you didn’t register your club but want to help, ask the person who did if you can help pass out postcards.  Or download and print the MINI Takes the States 2012 postcard (PDF).

MINI Takes the States 2012 update

MINI Takes the States 2012 update

MINI USA has added a bit more information to the MINI Takes the States 2012 webpage.

July 4th is the kickoff of our cross-country road rally, MINI TAKES THE STATES 2012 (MTTS, for short). From July 4-15, a caravan of MINIs will traverse the country, stopping to eat, sleep and have a blast at stops along the way. With special events such as MINI Autocross courses in Philadelphia, Nashville, Chicago and Los Angeles, this will be no ordinary road trip.

Visit the official MINI Takes the States 2012 website.

MINI Takes the States 2012: early information

MINI Takes the States 2012
If you’re a MINI enthusiast—and you mostly like are since you’re reading this—then you have probably received the MINI Takes the States announcement email or the MINI USA News press release.

The previously leaked dates are confirmed: July 4 – 15, 2012.  Jim McDowell had already said MTTS 2012 would start on the East Coast.  The new piece of information is that MTTS will not end in Chicago (as rumored), but will end on the West Coast.  The specific route details are not yet available.  Registration begins in April.

MINI Takes the States 2012 confirmed

MTTS 2012 announcementIn a recent email from MINI USA promoting the MINI Countryman, the last section dropped this piece of information about MINI Takes the States 2012:

COMING NEXT SUMMER:
MINI TAKES THE STATES 2012

Here’s a bold New Year’s resolution: attend the biggest MINI road rally in America. It’s called MINI TAKES THE STATES and it’s back again in 2012. More details will be available in late January, but we’ve been getting lots of questions about it so we wanted to let everyone know that we are indeed gearing up for another one of our epic cross-country road rallies. To get an idea of what MTTS is all about, picture a caravan of MINIs stretched as far as the eye can see, with food, music & miles of motoring fun. Or, just check out the highlights from 2010.

Based on that statement, it appears that MTTS 2012 will have a similar structure to MTTS 2006: a coast-to-coast rally.
