Recently we heard from a source that MINI is currently planning the 50th Anniversary of the brand to coincide with a large event at Silverstone Racetrack in the UK. Based on what we’ve known for awhile about MINI’s event schedule, we’d guess that this event will likely be MINI United 2009 and that it will take place in late May of 2009.

We’re still trying to confirm much of this but the information appears quite credible at this point. So for those thinking of doing MINI United 2009 – you may want to pencil it in early.
