The Cities with a “Yellow Star” designation will have official Autocross courses setup for you! So who’s gonna do the whole thing? What’s your start city? We could easily catch the last 3 or 4 cities on this massive rally. Whose going and where do you wanna start! Comment away!
Rally to Cornudas/Justice City 02-19-12, a set on Flickr.
Selected pictures from Sundays Rally!
Attached the GoPro Cam to the side of the card and set it to take a snap shot every 10 seconds. Was able to capture the entire route in about 30 seconds. Enjoy!
Looks like Sunday will start off pretty nice and reach a high in the low 60′s. The afternoon will get some wind, but our morning drive should be great!
Be sure you take a few minutes to check your tires and come with a full tank of gas. There should be a diner in Cornudas so an ATM stop ahead of time wouldn’t hurt either.
If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email, the comments below or Facebook! See you all Sunday! 2-19-12
We’re looking forward to this weekends drive and we hope you all are too! Just wanted to share a few notes with everyone for the drive on Sunday:
We will start meeting-up around 8:45 AM at the Starbucks on Airway and the Gateway. The Address is 6669 Gateway Blvd. W, El Paso, Texas
I’d like to roll out by 10 am. This should be plenty of time for everyone to roll in and get ready.
The route is pretty straight forward. I-10 east to Sierra Blanca, then cut north to Cornudas. We will hit a rest stop just outside of Sierra Blanca then cruise through Sierra Blanca and catch FM-1111 to our destination.

Also a quick reminder about the Craven Speed Discount and Raffle. The codes were sent out in February’s email. The 10% discount code expires on Saturday, but the 5% code is permanents. All those who attend the rally will be eligible to enter the drawing for the Craven Speed Gift Certificates!
EPMINIS wants to welcome our new site sponsor, CravenSpeed! An email was sent out to all of our news subscribers earlier this evening. The email contained info on the next rally to be held on February 19th and a couple of discount codes that can be used on purchases through the Craven Speed website.
Go check out their site and add some bling to your MINI!
Don’t forget, all attendees of the next rally on February 19th will be eligible to win a $40 gift certificate from CravenSpeed!
Sunday February 19th will be the next Rally! This rally will be sponsored in part by Craven Speed. They have donated two $40 gift certificates as raffle prizes for our meet up and have some discount codes for us to use as well. We’ll send an email with the discount details to those of you who get the newsletter and or the website updates in their email. For the Rally Route, we will head east to Sierra Blanca, then north to Cornudas. Lunch, photos and Raffle in Cornudas. Montana Avenue will bring us home. More details to come!
Wednesday February 8th will be “MINI at the DON” sponsored by MINI of El Paso. We’ll be at the UTEP Don Haskins center to support the Miner’s Men’s Basketball team as they battle the Tulsa Hurricanes! MINI of El Paso has a LIMITED supply of FREE tickets available. If you would like some tickets, please contact Victor at the dealership, 915-778-9381, to reserve your spot!
Who’s planning on doing some MINI Takes the States? As I understand it, our best opportunity to join the rest of the MINI “Motorers” would be around July 10th or 11th. The route should drive through some cities just North of here! Although the routes are still being finalized, it’s a pretty safe bet you could block out some time from work between July 10th and July 16th. Official route announcements later this month or the beginning for March.
Working on more things behind the scenes-Hopefully some new t-shirt designs and a non-rally nighttime MINI meet-up. Keep up with our Site and Facebook for details to come!
