Fleet Of Mini Coopers To Drive Across United States

MONTEREY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A bunch of Minis are going on a maximum road trip starting Monday (Aug. 21).

That’s when a fleet of more than 174 Mini Coopers will rev up their engines in Monterey, California, and head out on a 15 day cross country road trip.

The trip is dubbed “Mini Takes The States” and will stop in cities all over the U.S. including Santa Barbara, Las Vegas, Dallas, Memphis, St. Louis and Washington D.C. before ending up in Lakeville, Connecticut, for the Lime Rock Vintage Festival.

Spokesman Jim McDowell says he expects more than 3,000 Mini enthusiasts and their friends to tag along during various legs of the trip.

The road trip is free and anyone with a Mini Cooper and a full tank of gas can participate.

Driving cross country is pricey right now but McDowell says it’s cheaper to drive a Cooper across the entire U.S. than it is to buy a plane ticket and fly.

Plus, he points out, “It’s so much more fun in a Mini Cooper.”
