The wait is over. Today we can finally announce the news that we’ve been alluding to for weeks. MotoringFile and Whiteroofradio have been named by MINI as the official podcast and news coverage sites of MINI United. That means we’ll be on the ground in Germany and Zandvoort with all access passes bringing you the latest in word, sound and video from what will surely be the largest MINI event ever. We’ll also be podcasting and blogging in the days and weeks leading up to the event on MF, WRR and the official MINI United weblog.
Here’s a quick look at our itinerary. First up, I’ll be heading over a few days early to explore Germany while blogging and podcasting about my experiences. This will include a trip to the NÃƒÂ¼rburgring Nordschleife where I’ll be meeting up with a local MINI club and possibly even experiencing a MINI race car on the ‘Ring.
Eventually I’ll make my way to Munich where I’ll join another local club on their way to the Netherlands and finally MINI United. With laptop and video recorder in-tow I’ll be documenting the trip as much as possible.
Db and Todd will be flying into the Netherlands a few days early to get a lay of the land and take a MINI road trip of sorts to Berlin and back – all while joining local MINI clubs on their way to Zandvoort. Once in Zandvoort Todd and DB will be setting up the WRR studio tent on site at Circuit park in the Festival Plaza.
Once at MINI United we’ll set-up shop at the official WRR/MF tent where we’ll be broadcasting live podcasts and meeting as many people as we can. We’ll also be roaming the grounds interviewing MINI owners from around the world, all while taking in the countless activities scheduled throughout the four days.
It’s going to be an incredible experience that we can’t wait for. It’s been hard keeping it all under wraps this long… I’m not sure we could have held out another week.
Be sure to stay tuned to Whiteroofradio and Motoringfile for more updates as the event gets closer, as well as almost live updates from the event once it’s underway!
