Just a reminder the Blue Ridge Parkway tour is just under 3 weeks away! Whether you're joining in for the full weekend End 2 Ender run, or just have time for a day or two, don't forget to register. Staying at the group hotels is optional, as we get closer to the event, the group leaders will be publishing their routes so you'll know where and (approximately) when we'll be rolling through an area.

To offer a motoring experience for everyone, we run in three groups and keep in mind, you can change groups at any time during the tour:

Bear Group - this group will travel the BRP at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops to take in the scenery. Expect minimal excursions off the BRP. But lots of time in fellowship with other MINI owners. The plan is to be unrushed and take in the beauty of the BRP.

Wolf Group - this group will have a mix of everything. Stops for scenery, some spirited runs, some leisurely stretches, some off-BRP add-ons. This group is for those more interested in the experience than in sticking to a schedule or seeing any particular place. Be ready for the unexpected and willing to roll with changes.

Otter Group - this group will really focus on the twisties. This means there will likely be several off-BRP add-ons, possibly at the expense of some overlooks and maybe even missing a mile or two of the BRP. It is anticipated that most runs, especially stuff off the BRP, will be done in a spirited manner.

Be sure and register over on so we know you're planning on joining up!

Dining with the group is optional. Staying at a group hotel is optional. Motoring Fun is Mandatory!
