MotoringFile has learned that MINI is currently looking at location options for MINI United 2009 in England. The idea is that the event should take place in the UK to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Mini itself. And while it’s strictly a rumor at this point, we believe MINI will make the 2009 MINI United more new product focused with the debut of a new offering of some kind. The current odds-on favorite is a MINI Challenge based factory JCW car with the most power ever offered by the brand – potentially also brought out as way to celebrate the 50th anniversary.

Of course you can expect any and all details of the event to be right here on MF as it takes shape over the next two years.

In the meantime, look for more details on MINI USA’s 2008 follow-up to MINI Takes the States in the coming months.
