More Official Info On MTTS 2010

Yes, the rally is on and will drive through a total of 19 states, covering more than 8,000 miles of road. Ten Thousand participants are expected. Register at www.minitakesthestates.com (beginning on May 18) to drive with the MINI team to Denver from one of five kickoff cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York or San Francisco. Owners may also join the caravans as they make their way across the map or meet at the designated stops to mingle with drivers, enjoy parties and see the new MINI Countryman.

On August 13, MTTS 2010 will arrive in Denver, for three days of MINI fun, including a music festival, MINI-Cross driving challenges, a road rally in and around Denver, games for the family and a vendor village. This time MTTS will also be about giving back. Blood drives for the American Red Cross will be hosted in Denver and in each of the kickoff cities. A portion of every registration fee will be donated to the Leukemia Society in the name of Ryan Marie Boykin, a passionate young MINI enthusiast who lost her battle with Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2007, but whose adventurous spirit lives on through the project known as “Ryan’s MINI Adventure.”
