MINI on the Mack

WRAPUP:  Another great MINI on the Mack is in the books.  We were a little over 100 cars short of the record 1450, but we had a fun time trying..  The 40 mile parade included an out and back drive on a highway were we saw over 10 miles of MINIs to beep and wave at.  The organizers did a great job dealing with the incredible amount of MINIs and keeping things organized and people fed.  Looking forward to going back for another attempt.. 4th time is a charm 😉

  1. I’ll be going to the MINI on the Mack, but since I am driving alone, will be taking the sorter route (for me) up the West side of Lake Michigan. Safe journeys everyone and see you there!!


    The largest parade of Mini cars consisted of 1,450 Minis and was organised by the London & Surrey Mini Owners Club as part of the London to Brighton Mini Run, Crystal Palace, UK, on 17 May 2009. The 2-mile course was round Crystal Palace Park with the majority of the Minis part of the London & Surrey Mini Owners Club with other mini drivers coming from around the UK and as far as the Netherlands.
    Lets go after this record with our Mini on The Mack 2017. This fine record has stood long enough.
    Well over 100 people and close to 60 cars made the SuperDawg run on the 8 of Aug. Great trip and a big thanks to Arnie and Steve for this great day and run.

  3. My daughter and my mom and I are going but not caravanning-on our own! See you all there!
