World Record Attempt Involving MINI Coopers Planned For Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of MINI Coopers will convene at the Mackinac Bridge this weekend, in an attempt to break a world record.

MINI owners from all over the country are already rolling into the Straits area to get in on the fun.

The MINI on the Mack starts Saturday morning, in Mackinaw City.

At 10:30 a.m., the MINI Coopers will cross the Mackinac Bridge, and then parade through downtown St. Ignace.

The goal is to beat the current world record of largest parade of MINIs.
