Here at MINI of Bedford, one of our favorite MINI-related events of the year is the MINI Takes the States rally. Of course, we take pride in the large inventory of new and pre-owned MINI cars at our MINI dealership serving Merrimack, NH, but we also enjoy getting out of New Hampshire to be part of the United States MINI community. If you’ve never heard of MINI Takes the States, this year would be an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with the event, and here at our dealership, our friendly team is excited to explain what it’s all about.

MINI Takes the States is a MINI loyalty event and rally that will simultaneously kick off in Orlando, FL and Portland, OR on July 14 and converge at Keystone Resort in Colorado on July 22. After arriving in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, participants will be treated to a packed weekend of activities, awesome drivers, and unique experiences. During the week of the rally, MINI owners will drive across the country, stopping only to sleep and eat.

Any current or future MINI owner from around the country is invited to participate, but you have to drive a MINI vehicle, whether that’s a 2019 MINI Cooper S or a different model. You can opt to drive the entire way or just for a certain leg. Registration is currently open, the participants can purchase one of three different ticket tiers. With paid registration, you’ll have access to all events based on ticket type purchased. Typically the event-holders provide drivers with a grab ‘n go breakfast each morning, but all other meals and accommodation will be up to each participant.
