Its time for MINI TAKES THE STATES 2018

Ok eastcoast and westcoast MINI enthusiasts. It is now time for
MINI TAKES THE STATES 2018 Hope to see your there

> Munich/Orlando/Portland. A two-fold start signal will launch the
popular MINI TAKES THE STATES 2018 rally event today in two US cities.
For the seventh edition of the cross country rally for owners and fans
of the British premium models, the MINI community will drive to their
joint destination on two routes for the first time. In the East the
participants will start off from the holiday and leisure destination
of Orlando/Florida. In the West, MINI enthusiasts will head off from
Portland, the largest city in the state of Oregon. The participants
from East and West will meet up exactly one week later. In Keystone,
around 120 kilometres west of Denver/Colorado, the rally?s closing
event will take place on 21 and 22 July 2018.

> MINI TAKES THE STATES is carried out every two years and expresses
the close ties between the MINI brand and the US fans of the British
premium small and compact models. In 2016 more than 4 000 MINI drivers
lined up at the start to at least one stage of the rally across the
United States. More than 900 even travelled the entire distance of
around 4 400 miles, equivalent to more than 7 000 kilometres.

> This year, once again, thousands of MINI fans are expected and they
can use two different routes this time. Both MINI TAKES THE STATES
2018 routes cover the same distance of around 2 515 miles (approx. 4
000 kilometres). The individual stages are between 200 and 460 miles
long and lead through beautiful and interesting natural landscapes on
carefully selected roads. Stop-overs in major cities along the tour
allow other participants to join the convoy. From Orlando, the MINI
Community first heads for Tallahassee and from there to the ski resort
of Keystone via New Orleans, Dallas, Oklahoma City and Dodge City. The
route from the West takes drivers to the Rocky Mountains via
Sacramento, Los Angeles, Flagstaff and Santa Fe and other cities.

> Apart from the fun social experience and the public declaration of
commitment to the world of MINI driving fun, MINI TAKES THE STATES is
above all also a charity event. A portion of the start fee and
donations collected along the course of the rally, benefit a social
project. All proceed will once again go to the Feeding America aid
organisation. In 2016, the MINI TAKES THE STATES earnings financed
more than 1.3 million meals for people in need in different parts of
the United States.
