Last week we reported on MINI USA’s MotorTober events planned throughout the nation at MINI dealers. This week I’m happy to announce my own participation in one of the premier events on the east coast hosted by Westchester MINI on October 21st in Rye NY. There will be a number of different track events with actual instructors from the Skip Barber racing school. Along with that you’ll also get a chance to ride with a professional driver to see the true limits of the MINI on the track. Westchester County Police will also be on hand to provide a safe driving day including instructions on putting car seats in properly, perhaps a child identification program and if all goes well, their driving simulators.

Away from the track MINI USA’s Accessory Development Manager Thomas Kurtz will be available from 10am to 12am to answer questions and show off his fully JCW equipped 2007 MINI. If you look closely you may be able to spot some unreleased or unannounced accessories hidden on his car.

And finally, yours truly will be on hand to answer questions about the MINI and maybe even spill some of that super secret insider information I’ve promised to keep off MotoringFile over the years. In between I hope to participate in all of the events myself as well as meet as many of you as possible.

So if you’re in the area, plan on stopping by Sunday October 21st!
