The 2007 MCS press car is packed, the tank is full, and all my various batteries are charged. In the morning, we hit the interstate for 11 hours of pure road trip action. We should arrive at the Dragon tomorrow evening if all goes well. We’ll have pictures on the MotoringFile Flickr group posted throughout the event and a quick update or two provided the Fontana wifi (two sticks and a can) holds together.

I’ll also be starting the official MF longterm review of the new 2007 Cooper S. I figured, what better place to test the R56 than with a massive road-trip and on a road like the Dragon. I’ll have a full review next week but look for some small updates before then.

Finally if you’re heading down to the Dragon, let’s hear about your plans in the comment section. And be sure to swing by the MF open house Friday night after the Brew Swap.

Safe travels everyone.
