    Join MINI of Grand Rapids and MINI motorists from all over the country as we attempt to break the Guinness Book World Record for the Largest Parade of MINIs.

    The rally will take place on Saturday, August 3rd and will culminate with a mass crossing of the Mackinac Bridge.

    More details will become available soon.

    Check back often and don't forget to invite every MINI owner you can find so we can break the record of 1,450 MINIs!

    I just saw the Fifth Gear episode where they set the current record with Ferraris in Old Blighty and thought this is something we should do with MINIs on this side of the pond. Thanks for posting about this. Will be interested in the progress.

    I wish this was happening a bit further south. I could guarantee our 2 MINI's for the parade. But Michigan is a bit far for us to go from Florida!

    A dealership in Virginia Beach has talked about trying this same thing. Perhaps if they get their act together more people from south of the border can participate.

    So who else is going to MINIs on the Mac?

    Right now it looks to be about 20-ish MINIs from Chicago area, and I know of a few Milwaukee area people as well.

    The family is planning on heading out to Grand Rapids area Thursday night. We'll join up with a group leaving from MINI of Grand Rapids around noon or 1pm.

    We'll be heading back around the Wisconsin side for the drive home.
