Soon I’ll be leaving for Munich and beginning my MINI United road trip across Europe. First on the list is picking up Laser Blue/White 2007 MCS (w/English Speaking Navigation!). Shortly afterwards I’ll be driving the Nurburgring (and experiencing it in everything from a 2007 MCS to MINI & BMW race cars). Provided the promised Wifi is in working condition I’ll also have updates and photos throughout the trip. Eventually I’ll make my way back to Munich where I’ll tour some BMW facilities before leaving for a cross continent trek to Amsterdam and MINI United. I’ll be testing the limits of the Autobahn (where appropriate) in effort to get to Zandvoort by Thursday afternoon.
MINI United coverage will should begin on MotoringFile and White Roof Radio from Thursday evening onward where I’ll meet-up with Todd and DB. During our time at MU we’ll have interviews with everyone from Gert Hildebrand (head of MINI design) to John Cooper to Kay Segler (VP of MINI Brand Management). We’ll also be reporting from the field and trying (as best as possible) to capture all that is MINI United and bring it to your through your computer.
So if you can’t make it to MINI United next weekend, just stay tuned to MotoringFile for all the latest.
