Cool social event alert…The MINI Motoring Challenge is coming to Houston!

This event will take the typical “test drive” to another level and if you have a need for speed, then this will definitely be the place you want to be between May 29 – 31st (at NRG Park). The MINI Motoring Challenge will allow drivers to jump behind the wheel of their newest 2 and 4 door Hardtops on closed-course autocross tracks…at night! Yeah…we just had a moment too.

Called the “Ride & Drive”, this is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that includes not only the test drive portion but some of Houston’s local food trucks will be on site along with a silent disco (headphones will be available), The Bumbys, and live screen printing where you can make your own custom t-shirts. You can also participate in fun contests to win swanky MINI prizes.

Wanna know more about the autocross tracks? Okay, here are the deets…there will be three neon-lit autocross tracks that will simulate a getaway drive, a pinball machine, and a famous British racetrack, respectively. And since this is a closed course with no speed limits you can pretty much be “Gone in 60 Seconds” or even go a little fast (just without the furious part, of course). MINI has always been known for its legendary handling, but now the cars boast BMW Group turbo engines that make them faster in comparison to prior years.

The MINI Motoring Challenge is a free event so make sure you register as soon as possible because the spaces are limited and you don’t want to miss out on this unique opportunity. Check out to RSVP!

MINI is also one of the most customizable cars you can buy. Their website has a cool configurator where you can build out your dream car!. Check it out as well.
