The little car that could will be the focus of a festival called MINI United in Italy from October 28th through the 30th. Akin to a Jeep Jamboree or whatever you call it when all those Saturn owners get together, MINI United will take place at the Santa Monica racetrack in Misano. Instead of climbing rocks or admiring composite plastic body panels, MINI owners will witness the championship of the 2005 John Cooper Challenge. Top drivers from qualifying rounds held around the world will go head-to-head in karting, slalom, racing and off-road challenges to crown the first king of the Cooper S. A MINI market with every diminutive accessory under the sun will also be on-site.
