The bi-annual MINI TAKES THE STATES (MTTS) rally kicked off in New York Wednesday, July 4th and will make the cross-country trek to Los Angeles concluding on Sunday, July 15th. Throughout the journey, Fatboy is providing an imaginative and energizing environment at stops with their fashionable lounge chairs for all the travelers to enjoy.

“Fatboy is proud to partner with MINI USA for this year’s MINI TAKES THE STATES excursion,” said President of Fatboy USA, Paula Masters. “Clearly we are a perfect fit for each other as MINI aligns with Fatboy’s commitment to providing fans with innovative, surprising and unparalleled experiences.”

As both Fatboy and MINI are celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year in the US, this is an exciting time to celebrate amongst the thousands of enthusiasts who will join the cross-country rally, or a leg of it, dotting the horizon with a gleaming caravan of MINIs. Along the way, MINI USA is providing its loyal owners and enthusiasts with genuine, once-in-a-lifetime motoring experiences as well as a unique lounging experience in the Owners Lounge, furnished with Fatboy® originals and Fatboy® points for guests to kick back in and experience the event.

“MTTS is perhaps the brand’s greatest demonstration of our commitment to the MINI community,” said Jim McDowell, Vice President MINI USA. “During MTTS, MINI USA acts on its promise to deliver a motoring experience unlike any other brand, engaging owners and their families and ensuring they enjoy their MINI to the fullest extent possible.”

For this year’s MTTS rally, the United States Paralympic Team is the charitable partner. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Paralympic Movement, with a minimum of $10,000 earmarked to support the Paralympic athletes who will compete in the 2012 Paralympic Games in London as well as 2016 hopefuls as they train.
