PittStopMINI’s GyMINIkhana 2013
MINI of Pittsburgh’s Rallye-Tober 2013
Sunday October 20th, 2013
GyMINIkhana? What's THAT? A traditional "gymkhana"
is a fun, automotive "athletic" event involving driving cars through a
set, fun course for times and prizes. PittStop MINI's signature GyMINIkhana event
(our 7th annual!) takes that to a whole new level, and one that's even
more fun, safer, and won't wear on your car! This is a day FULL of
vehicle and driver dynamics training - with style.
Have you ever slalomed your Mini? Learned what it (and you) can do in a
safe environment, with professional Motoring Instructors helping you
learn Vehicle Dynamics? And (optional),would you like to test your
skills against the clock on a timed autocross? Learn to drive FUN - and
celebrate Rallye-tober with your MINI friends!
Rallye-Tober 2013? That’s MINI
of Pittsburgh’s“World’s Best Test Drive, Period”, where MINI of
Pittsburgh comes out to play with PittSTOP, allowing you to drive the
new models and show off to your friends (Note: This is not a pressure-sales event, but a PittStop MINI Motoring event! But, if you have friends who are interested in MINI’s, bring ‘em!! They can see how much fun we have!)
Where: PIRC Motorsports Complex, Wampum, PA (north of PA Turnpike Exit 13)
When: Sunday, October 20 starting at 8am. Club-only time is 8AM - 11AM, then Mini of Pittsburgh is ALSO hosting "Rallye-Tober 2013",
their World’s Best Test Drive, which extends our joint event until
4PM! (And our Steelers play on Thursday Oct 11, leaving our weekend
free for MINI events!)
included is breakfast (donuts/coffee) and lunch. Sign up via the
PittStop MINI website(mandatory if you want to participate) to reserve
your spot today.
And a HUGE thank you to MINI of Pittsburgh for
their continued support! Thanks to them, this event costs
only$15/driver, with proceeds being donated to the Pittsburgh Vintage
Grand Prix Charities!
- Is this for Expert Drivers only? DEFINITELY NOT! This is an “educational” event as much as a “fun” one.
can’t emphasize this enough: We encourage ALL levels of Motorers to
sign up. All feedback we’ve received from all levels of Motorer
indicate we all can learn something, and this is a GREAT non-judgmental
environment to do it!
- Do I need to drive a Mini at the event? Well,no, but if you don’t you’re missing some of the fun!
- Will this wear on my car?
Yes, but only as far as YOU push it. We will not be exceeding highway
speeds, and your vehicle wear items will only be affected by YOU doing
$15/driver? That’s ludicrously low!
Yes, it is. This event should cost $150-200, but Mini of Pittsburgh is
once again generously sponsoring this event so our Member cost
