MINI Fans Unite! The MINI Mate App for Facebook
With enthusiastic fans and dedicated clubs, the MINI community is about as strong as they come. Now you can connect with like-minded fans easier than ever.
MINI has just launched “MINI Mate” on Facebook, an exciting new app that brings together fans locally or from around the world. Users can share interests, bond over a particular MINI model, plan a carpool or caravan to their next event, or chat with other members in the ‘Shout Box.’
By selecting MINI events a member has already been to or plans to attend — like MINI United 2012 this May — MINI Mate can help reconnect old friends or find new ones. Not familiar with what a MINI event looks like? You can learn more about these by going to the MINI Event Finder.
MINI is also celebrating the strength of its amazing community by giving away cool prizes through the app. The more people that join, the bigger the prizes! So rally your own MINI crew — you might make more than a few new friends.
Get to know MINI Mate. It’s a great tool to unite like-minded fans. With all its handy features, it can be your home for building a personalized MINI identity that gets you connected with the extended MINI community. Join the crowd now!
Get up close and personal with the MINI ALL4 Racing and see what it takes to get a MINI tuned to take on the devilish dunes of the Dakar Rally.
The competitors at the 2015 Rally Dakar now have half of the roughly 9,000 kilometres through the heart of South America behind them. Their reward is a rest day. However, it would be wrong to believe they can put their feet up for a day. There is no time for that sort of thing on the toughest rally in the world.
Traffic jams aren't good for much, but they definitely produce some great daydreams. Anna Dulin, designer and new MINI driver from Houston, brought one common commuter's fantasy to life. Watch here.
He did it! After completing a 9,000+-kilometre loop through South America, Nasser Al-Attiyah won the Rally Dakar 2015 in the MINI ALL4 Racing. It is the fourth time in a row that MINI has won the world's toughest rally.
MINI has competed in the gruelling Dakar Rally since 2011, winning 3 of the 4 it's entered. Recap one of the greatest winning streaks for MINI since its legendary days of the 1960s here.
