Today marks the start of our MINI United trip as we prepare for the long trip to the Côte d’Azur and the Paul Ricard Circuit. It’ll be Todd and myself bringing you the best of MINI United in words, photos and of course through sound and podcasts. But the question we have – who else is going? Sound off in the comments below.
MINI United, the largest MINI event in the world is back for 2012. After a three year hiatus Southern France will host the the biggest MINI related party of the year. And you should come. Why? For one MINI United is an experienced un-matched by any other event in the world. Secondly the scale, the production value and the international feel of us makes for a once in a life-time experience. MINI related or not this is a huge party that feels like an adult amusement park.
Finally (and most importantly), MotoringFile will be there.
It doesn’t get any bigger than this in the MINI World. If you want to go to one event, MINI United is your answer. And today MINI is formally announcing the finalized concert line-up for MINI United 2012. If you have the second weekend in May free and are looking for an excuse to get away, look no further. Ticket and travel information can be found here.
There you have it. The official word is out. In a year overflowing with MINI events, MINI United is officially happening May 11-13. Set your sights on Le Castellet, France and the Circuit Paul Ricard for what MINI is summing up as “FRIENDS. FESTIVAL. RACING.” The world MINI festival will bring visitors together from all around the world for three days of fun for fans and owners. As in MINI United events in the past, MINI plans to unveil a new model (our money is on the production Paceman). Also returning is MINI USA’s commitment to make the event extra special for any American MINI owners who make the trip. Registration is discounted to just $50, there will be a MINI USA hospitality area throughout the event, special hotel rates (plus a shuttle), and even loaner cars for the on-track experiences. Click past the break for all those details and more. Who’s going? continued →

Earlier this week, an eagle-eyed reader pointed out that a little event called MINI United was listed on a French racetrack’s online calendar of events. That listing was soon removed, but now we have the official announcement from MINI that the beloved global MINI festival will take place May 11-13, 2012 at Circuit Paul Recard after all. MINI throws a hell of a party and MINI United looks like it’s going to be a great time. We’ve talked with MINI USA and they’ll be putting together something special for US owners who attend as well. More information is available over at MINI Space, and the full press release is after the break. Will we see you there? continued →
