Earlier this month, MINI shared the official route for the 2024 iterations of its iconic U.S.-based road rally, MINI Takes The States. The last MINI Takes The States took place in 2022 and saw over 2,000 MINI owners traverse eastern highways, with a start in Burlington, Vermont and a conclusion in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
For 2024, MINI-crazed fans are heading west, with a start in Albuquerque, New Mexico on July 13th and a finale on Sunday, July 21st in Seattle, Washington. MINI says, “The on-road adventure will traverse five states and nine cities with participants cruising through diverse landscapes including the desert plains of New Mexico and the mountainous forests of Washington state.”
MINI of the Americas Vice President and Chief Motorer Mike Peyton says, “We’re excited to reconnect with our MINI owners nation-wide to foster current relationships, forge new friendships and make lasting memories, this time in some of our incredible and majestic western states. Knowing the special nature of this event for our community, we’ve curated an extraordinary adventure that promises an unforgettable experience.”
