It was not a forgone conclusion that we would see a MINI Takes the States 2020. Yet MINI USA had once again committed to the epic event. While details of the route or the structure of the event have yet to be unveiled, it’s expected to follow 2018’s lead in multiple starting posts leading to a central end-point somewhere in the middle of the US.
As always look for MotoringFile to deliver updates before anyone else as MTTS plans get solidified.
Official Release: MINI Takes the States 2020
The day MINI owners have been waiting for since July 2018 has finally arrived. MINI USA today announced the return of MINI TAKES THE STATES (MTTS) in 2020. The legendary MINI owners rally will take place from July 18 – 26, 2020. MTTS is one of the most anticipated events amongst the MINI community, with previous rallies occurring every other summer since 2006. The route for MTTS 2020 will be announced at a later date.
“The MINI community is the lifeblood of our brand, so we are extremely excited to once again host this amazing rally experience,” said Mike Peyton, Vice President, MINI of the Americas. “MINI owners love two things, in particular – driving and being part of the MINI community. There is no better way to celebrate the drive in all of us, than to rally once again through America’s backroads and byways. We’re looking forward to another epic gathering of passionate motorers, dedicated miniacs, and good friends.”
MTTS 2018 attracted more than 3,600 MINI owners who took part in the Rally to the Rockies, with 1,000+ MINIs on the road each day. The two groups drove on two separate routes, one starting in Orlando, Fla., and the other in Portland, Ore., converging in Keystone, Colo., for a three-day festival of all things MINI. The group of loyal MINI owners travelled a total of more than 5,000 miles through 15 cities and 14 states. At times the group swelled to more than 1,000 owners and 500 vehicles of all shapes, colors and sizes on each route.
For years the MINI community has rallied together with purpose, working with a number of charity organizations to give back to the communities where we live, work and drive, including Best Friends Animal Society and Feeding America. A charity partner for MTTS 2020 will be announced at a later date.
