Miami: June 13-15
>Fun, sun and lots of gorgeous hard bodies. We mean all those MINIs of course. The MTTS events kick-off with a weekend in Miami and the Homestead Racetrack with hot laps, music and motoring tales aplenty from MINI racing legend Rauno “The Flying Finn” Aaltonen.
Boston: June 20-22
>The last leg of The Flying Finn’s rally from Miami and the second big weekend of MTTS fun comes to this city well known for throwing some historic parties on the waterfront. Our choice spot at the University of Massachusetts, Boston campus along the water should work out perfectly.
Chicago: July 25-27
>MINI Takes the States heads to the heartland to keep the summer of fun rolling along. With a rally kick-off at the Lincoln Park Zoo and a weekend full of events at the famous Road America race track, there should be no shortage of good times and adrenaline.
Los Angeles: August 1-3
>MINI Owners already feel a little bit like celebrities with all the admiring stares they tend to attract. Just imagine the looks we’ll get when a thousand of us storm the City of Angels. Plus, we’re taking over the Rose Bowl for the MTTS festival, so you’ll get to reenact all your favorite football dreams with your MINI cheering you on.

Yes the rumors are true. MINI USA has asked us to do our thing for the entire MTTS journey this summer. That means there will be representatives of MF and WRR at every MTTS event this summer bringing the action to everyone around the world. Starting off expect to see all three of us at the kick-off in Miami. Then as MTTS turns into a giant MINI road trip on its way to Boston, there’s a good chance Todd and DB will be there riding along with everyone reporting from the road. After a couple weeks of recuperating, MTTS arrives in Chicago. And with Chicago being the home of MotoringFile, you can bet we’ll be there. Expect to see Gabe, Todd and possibly DB doing the whole audio and video thing on and off all weekend. Finally MTTS makes its way to LA where the entire event wraps up. Todd and DB will be in the house to make the final weekend of MTTS one to remember.
