An Unforgettable Experience

by on March 26th, 2012 at 12:07pm in News



Just ask anyone who’s been lucky enough to take a MINI through a slalom course. Unless the person happens to be a retired astronaut accustomed to pulling serious G’s, he’ll tell you it was one of the most fun, adrenaline-charged experiences of his life.

That’s because a MINI is designed to deliver incredibly tight, nimble handling that makes the driver feel in complete control. With a low center of gravity and all four wheels pushed out to the corners, a MINI’s wide stance keeps the car supremely balanced. And that translates into high-performance handling you typically only find on sports cars costing way more than a MINI.

A few winter Driving Tips

by on January 20th, 2012 at 10:39am in News

Winter driving can be hazardous and scary. Additional preparations can help make a trip safer, or help motorists deal with an emergency.

The three P’s of Safe Winter Driving:

PREPARE for the trip; PROTECT yourself; and PREVENT crashes on the road.

PREPARE

Maintain Your Car: Check battery, tire tread, and windshield wipers, keep your windows clear, put no-freeze fluid in the washer reservoir, and check your antifreeze.

Have On Hand: flashlight, jumper cables, abrasive material (sand, kitty litter, even floor mats), shovel, snow brush and ice scraper, warning devices (like flares) and blankets. For long trips, add food and water, medication and cell phone.

Stopped or Stalled? Stay in your car, don’t overexert, put bright markers on antenna or windows and shine dome light, and, if you run your car, clear exhaust pipe and run it just enough to stay warm.

Plan Your route: Allow plenty of time (check the weather and leave early if necessary), be familiar with the maps/ directions, and let others know your route band arrival time.

Practice Cold Weather Driving!

* During the daylight, rehearse maneuvers slowly on ice or snow in an empty lot.

* Steer into a skid.

* Stopping distances are longer on ice.

* Don’t idle for a long time with the windows up or in an enclosed space.

PROTECTYOURSELF

* Buckle up and use child safety seats properly.

* Never place a rear-facing infant seat in front of an air bag.

* Children 12 and under are much safer in the back seat.

PREVENT CRASHES

* Drugs and alcohol never mix with driving.

* Slow down and increase distances between cars.

* Keep your eyes open for pedestrians walking in the road.

* Avoid fatigue – Get plenty of rest before the trip, stop at least every three hours, and rotate drivers if possible.

* If you are planning to drink, designate a sober driver.

MINI Mythbusters – Myth Confirmed

by on November 14th, 2011 at 11:46am in News

YouTube Preview ImageThe MINI WRC team just finished their last race of the season. Dani Sordo and the rest of the team put on an excellent show and placed in 4th in the UK. Great job guys!! Next year the podium will be ours! I thought this would be an excellent time to address a myth that I’ve seen popping up on the Internet. There has been a myth thrown around the Internet that the MINI can actually fly. Some completely disagree with this myth and I’m here to show you the video footage that actually confirms this myth. Warning this may be a shock to some viewers but the MINI CAN FLY! No CGI used here.
