       Longest Continuous Line of MINIs set new world record

[June 13] VIRGINIA BEACH, UK--273 MINIs old and new lined up at Virginia Beach and stretched over five miles to re-establish the record for the longest continuous line of MINIs set just last year. The parade of MINIs just edged the 269 cars that congregated in the UK last year. The tiny cars assembled and then drove along "in an uninterrupted chain more than 5 miles long!"

    The bulk of the cars came from MINI Clubs like Se7en Cities MINI, DC Metro MINIs, HR Club MINI, River City MINIs, PhillyMINI, NEO MINIs, Tarheels MINI, M2C2 and attendees from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, DC, Indiana and West Virginia.

   The run started forming at 1:00 PM and all MINI/Minis rolling at 3:08 PM and ending at 3:48 having traveled 5.8 miles.
   The 273 MINIs were lead by Rudy Boesch, finalist from Survivor Season One.

The results were verified by independent witnesses Virginia Beach City Councilman Bob Dyer, and Officer Randall Verdin of the Virginia Beach Police Department.

   The Event was sponsored by Checkered Flag BMW/MINI, MINIUSA, C.P.Shuckers Restaurant on Shore Drive, Ashley and Associates Insurance Agency, Whalen Shift Machine Custom Knobs, Conklins Irish Rover and MC2 Magazine.

   Apart from the new world record for the longest continuous line of MINIs, the event raised like $3000.00 for the Naval Special Warfare Foundation.
