MINI owners from around the world rally from San Francisco to
Boston: 14 cities, 18 states in 15 days.
Woodcliff Lake, NJ – July 27, 2014…Motorers, start
your engines! MINI TAKES THE STATES (MTTS) 2014 is now underway. The
rally kicked off early on July 27th with fellow MINI owner and
partner, Tony Hawk, performing a MINI inspired skateboarding stunt to
send off MINI owners itching to hit the road.
“Pairing Tony’s send-off with our community’s excitement at Golden
Gate Fields was a true MINI moment,” said David Duncan, Vice President
MINI of the Americas. “You could feel the energy from the MINI
community in the air. This is going to be an epic rally like never before!”
The group - sometimes as large as 1,000 participants and more than
100 pets - will finish the Motoring adventure in Boston on Sunday,
August 10. More than 350 participants will go “all the way”.
MINI owners looking to join up with the rally can still register at
or on-site the day of the event in each city. The registration fee for
adults is $45. Pets and kids under 12 are free.
