MINI Cooper Meet! - 'Go Cart on Steroids'!
MINI Cooper Meet! Mini enthusiasts from North America and even at least one from Europe converged on Penticton in the California to Penticton meet for the Mighty Mini. So we are driving along and see these amazing little cars in the hotel parking lot, time to pull over and check them out. One of the owners tells us that they are racing up at Penticton Speedway, so up we go. We arrived just as they were finishing so we make our way back to the hotel where the cars are on display and owners and members in Mini Club are catching up. One thing leads to another and we make new friends, learn about the cars and get a ride, this is the best job in the world. Car of the Century!
