    Construction/Repairs have been completed on the BRP - group leaders are busy planning their routes, it'll be a weekend of Motoring you are sure to enjoy!

    Registrations are still rolling in! Construction on the Parkway is completed, and soon it will start to come abuzz with traveler activity.

    Our group hotel blocks are starting to be released, so it you're thinking about this one, you may want to make some calls to our selected hotels and get a reservation in place.

    Here's a link to all the Hotel Information

    It's nearly here! First DRAFT of the itineraries for ALL groups are available here:

    http://www.tarheelminis.org/2014_events/2014_brp_tour_itinerary.pdf

    A couple quick notes:

    - everything is always tentative; traveling as many miles over as much time as it takes means it is virtually impossible to keep to the timetable. We are MINI drivers, not train engineers after all (though if we had a train engineer in our group that would be pretty cool).

    - for Sunday morning, we are still working on trying to organize a group photo. As we finalize those plans, we will let you know. That probably means the Sunday schedule will change.

    - the Otter schedule is only a very loose estimate. You know those Otters - they hit the twisties and who knows how long it will be before they surface again.

    If we have any major changes, we'll be sure to let you know.

    Thanks for your patience and we look forward to seeing you next week!

    Man, this is SO close to me. But it turns out to be a terrible weekend for me. I've got no backup at work this next week, so no way for me to skip out early to even hang out at the pre-event, and then I've got a house full of people coming to stay on Friday through the weekend.

    It sure would be nice to meet some MINI fanatics and get their hands-on insights to my Black Top!

    Only 4 more days to get registered!

    The excitement is building, and BRPT 7 is rapidly approaching! 469 Miles, 50 Minis, 3 groups. Head over to MotorSportReg to get yourself registered for the whole tour, or as many days as you wish!

    ah, that stinks! If you're close enough to the hotel or restaurant, come on out and say Hey! We've been known to linger now and then. (or leave the key under the mat, and let your family let themselves in your house ... :ihih:)

    This year's BRPT was great. We had beautiful weather and from what I hear a good time was had by all.

    Please join THMMC for next year's edition and this fall's THMMC events, MINIPalooza in the Mountains (Sept 2-6, 2014) in Asheville, NC and the 12th Annual MINIs Slay the Sleeping Dragon (October 24-26, 2014) Fontana Village, NC.
