Save the Date: MTTS is July 4-15, 2012

Many of you will receive this information in an email from MINI over the next few hours, but we’ve got the word early thanks to MINI and White Roof Radio. This year’s installment of MINI’s epic road trip, MINI Takes The States, will take place over 11 days starting on Independence Day.

Celebrating 10 years of MINI, it’s an East-to-West road trip and while the exact start point, end point and way points are as yet unrevealed, expect the main route to run coast to coast. Along the way, MINI has lots planned. There will be sights to see, but more thrilling are the once-in-a-lifetime MINI motoring opportunities that MINI USA is likely to organize along the way. Previous MTTS trips have given people the chance to drive their cars on the Bonneville Salt Flats, and even around the oval at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Attractions aside, expect MINI to throw a hell of a party from sea to shining sea. Registration starts in April with full route details expected sometime next month. Are you excited yet? You should be.

Go Forth. Go West. Go MINI.

    Sounds great, we will make the trip all the way from SoCal to the East coast to Join up and then all they way back.

    • Lauryn Taylor

      Like wise we will do the same. We’re doing AMVIV and Mini Meet West on the way to the east to join up with MTTS for the trip home.

  • Yes! Though don’t know if I can do it again this year – but I’d like to 🙂

    Oh it is ON!!!!

    Ian — we’re thinking about this (sans dog)…want company behind you?

    Awesome!  Kansas City to the east coast, to the west coast, and back to Kansas City.  Can’t wait!

    That picture in the email was taken by Janet Ford and my MINI is the LBM one right in front of the silver one from another friend that was motoring with us from Montana while we were in Colorado in 2010 for MTTS.


    Three MINIs are taking Canada and the Arctic Ocean next week in the Alcan 5000. You can follow us at @AlcanMINI.

    Hey guys, I am trying to plan for this (for the first time) – anyone willing to answer a few questions through email about the last one? Thanks!
