Want to partner up with your MINI Clubman or MINI Countryman near Salem, MA and experience something unforgettable? Sign up for MINI Takes the States (MTTS), a biennial, eight-day road rally that attracts MINI drivers from all corners of the country. If you hurry, you can still participate in the 2018 event, which runs from July 14 – 22.

This year’s MTTS rally has two starting points: one on the West Coast in Portland, OR, and the other on the East Coast in Orlando, FL. Drivers mustering in each city will start the rally simultaneously, motoring across half of the U.S. to the event’s endpoint: beautiful Keystone Resort in Keystone, CO. MTTS 2018 is a terrific opportunity for MINI enthusiasts to make new friendships and renew existing ones while benefiting Feeding America, the event’s official charity partner.

Plenty of big-name sponsors are onboard for MTTS 2018, including MapQuest, which teamed up with MINI USA to create a custom navigation application for MTTS 2018. Rally participants who use this custom app can choose special routes specially designed by MINI USA and MapQuest, and discover unique side-adventures during the trip. Also, our MINI Cooper dealer serving Peabody, MA is happy to see Pirelli Tires as an MTTS 2018 sponsor, especially because the company is offering special MINI Approved Tires for MINI Clubman, MINI Countryman, and MINI Paceman models. MTTS drivers can save $70 when they install a set of these exclusive tires, identifiable by a star molded into the sidewalls.
