Date Confirmed: 2017 MINI on the Mack

So you have a MINI, you live in or around the US, and there’s no MINI Takes The States next summer. What will you do with your summer vacation? MINI on the Mack of course! Join thousands of other MINI owners as they return to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. An official date is set, and once again, we’ll converge on Northern Michigan and the Mackinaw Bridge in another attempt to break the 2006 London record of 1,450 MINIs in a parade.



In 2015 the official attempt total was 1,319 MINIs marching their way north across the bridge. A bit shy of the numbers needed. We expect that a little more communication in 2017 will lead to a successful record-breaking attempt!

    i see they have their registration open for this event. I am a first time mini owner with a 2017 MINI Cooper S Clubman ALL4. I have already registered here: for the event!

    Hopefully this is the year to be in the Record Books!
