United has been confirmed for the weekend of May 11-13, 2012, and MINI USA welcomes owners from the US to join us as MINI fans, owners and lovers from all over the world converge to Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, France for an unforgettable weekend. In addition to the many festival activities, MINI United will serve as the exclusive location for a new MINI model to make its world premiere.

The three-day event comprises of an open-air festival, owner and fan driving experiences on the track, motorsport activities, live music, stunt shows and vehicle displays ranging from Mini classics to the current lineup. During the MINI United 2012 weekend, two pro-series races have been scheduled at Circuit Paul Ricard… the MINI Trophy from Germany and the MINI RUSH HOUR from Italy.

The list of musical performers is being updated daily. For full details about who's been confirmed to perform during MINI United, please visit www.minispace.com or the MINI United facebook page ( www.facebook.com/MINIunited ).

While there is an international website, US guests who plan to attend MINI United are encouraged to register at: www.miniunited2012.com  beginning Wednesday, February 22. By registering here, MINI owners in the US will enjoy a slight discount on the registration fee for a weekend pass ($50 USD at the link noted here, normally €40).
