    The MTTS in like a long slow funeral precession full of “wavers” and cars with eyelashes. LXM parade, boring.

    :D:p:rolleyes:

    MTTS is not one of those things on my "bucket list things to do" so having it on the east coast, when I am on the west coast, means I don't have to do this. A gasoline powered MINI would take 3 to 4 days of almost nonstop driving to get to the start from here, an electric MINI might take, at minimum 20 days.

    This is definitely not meant to promote the electrifcation of MINIs to those of us on the other side of the continent.

    I think I will look for a west coast drive this summer.

    This year’s route is a little strange for sure! I know the last MTTS was southeast and northwest to Colorado. Maybe MINIUSA is trying to hit more smaller areas with each event, rather than the whole country, like they tried to do in the past. I felt left out last time, but man, the west coast gets really screwed this time.

    Well why spend money in the US market when Americans are not buying MINI’s.

    MINI New car sales are in the toilet and I am really surprised MTTS is even happening at all to be honest.

    Actually it probably is fairly cheap marketing for MINI. Lord knows they could use it.

    Sparky the MINI. Might work for local around town stuff, but man one would be in trouble on a long back road drive.
