MTTS 2018 registrations is officially open. With MINI Takes the States only three months away, many readers have already begun planning their participation. Staged every other year, the 2018 event (July 14 – 22) will start from two separate locations on opposite sides of the country and meet in the middle for a weekend celebration of everything MINI. The starting cities will be Orlando, Fla., and Portland, Ore. The final destination is Keystone Resort in Keystone, Colo., approximately 75 miles west of downtown Denver. Once arriving at Keystone, MINI owners from both routes will have the weekend to trade stories, share their experiences, show off their MINI, explore the area on curated mountain drives, support the Feeding America charity and enjoy fun activities planned by the MINI USA team.
There have been six MTTS road trips starting with the inaugural rally in 2006. The seventh biennial MTTS rally will travel through America’s scenic backroads and byways. In true MINI TAKES THE STATES fashion, these routes will not take a direct path but rather focus on state and county roads as they make their way across the country.
