It’s db, Todd, Gabe and Chad talking about MINIs for you on a Monday night, like they like to do. News from MotoringFile kicks us off and we end up going a little all over the place, just like we like to do. Paceman talk is the bulk, but we talk Dakar and the new Clubman package too! In case you missed any of the WRR/MF interviews with Jim McDowell and Dr. Kay Segler follow those links to get them!
Remember to mark those calendars. The Phoenix Tech Day is March 2nd. If you want cool graphics on your MINI before AMVIV, this is the time to do it! It’s happening in Tempe, Arizona at Eurotechs, which is only about a 5 hour drive from Vegas and SoCal. At least it is the way you guys drive!
The MINI you see above, the JCW Paceman, was the topic for this weeks show, along with a few other nuggets from the NAIAS in Detroit, news from MotoringFile and even an Ask Chad question. WRR HQ in Kansas experienced technical difficulties, so you don’t get that. What you do get are some fantastic interviews that Gabe and Nathaniel did while at the NAIAS with some of the who’s who at MINI and MINIUSA!
You also hear about some event updates. First up is the Eurotechs Tech Day, featuring our man Todd working the custom graphics. If you want to get on some of that, sign-up before spaces run out! You could wait for AMVIV in May, but there might not be enough time. You can also watch for Todd at the Philly Meeting later in March. There might be a small spot still open for graphics, use the link above to contact Todd to find out.
MINI United Officially Announced!
For those of you that missed it over at MotoringFile, it’s official! MINI United is on for May 11-13, 2012! Click over for the full press release and details that we have right now.
We’ve mentioned this on the show already, but 2012 is shaping up to be a pretty busy year in the MINI Community, and White Roof Radio is going to be there every step of the way! You will be seeing us at Dealer Grand Openings, The Dragon, AMVIV 9 and, with any luck, MINI United. Finally, MTTS has been confirmed for next summer and you know we’ll be all over that, right?
White Roof Radio, Live from AMVIV!
The ‘Triple Three’ will be available shortly. While you wait, why not have a look at what the boys did at AMVIV a few weekends ago. A little something we like to call White Roof Radio Live!
Getting close to closing out February and it would seem that you folks out in White Roof Radio land are still enjoying this little dog and pony show that Todd, Gabe, Chad and I put together every week. Click the graphic above to see that WRR is currently holding down the #6 spot for audio automotive podcasts! That’s better than Car & Driver, all of the Motortrend shows and Autoblog!
We’ve got a big month coming up that you aren’t going to want to miss! First up, I will be at MINI of Ontario for the blood drive on February 27th. If you think you are going to make it, RSVP on Facebook or call Colin at 909.390.1818 to let him know you are coming. It’s going to be pretty awesome.
If you haven’t been over there yet, here is a short video to give you a taste of how cool it is!
After that, Todd and I will both be back at MINI of Ontario on March 6th for their Grand Opening! It’s going to be a HUGE party that you won’t want to miss! Bonus, if you aren’t in SoCal, you might not have too. Stay tuned for details coming. UPDATE: If you are planning on attending, please RSVP on Facebook or email email@example.com.
Finally, at the end of March we will all be at AMVIV! We say this every year, but we honestly think that this is the year you are not going to want to miss! It is going to be EPIC!
Thanks for listening, thanks for sticking with us and thanks for spreading the word. It’s because of you, the fine White Roof Radio listener, that we do this!
AMVIV 6 – The Banquet
Full download to follow later today at WhiteRoof.tv.
Plus a quick AMVIV wrap-up.
But what about Woof291? You see, we recorded it live from Vegas. But, if I’m honest, it’s listenable. Not to worry because we did capture it on video. You don’t care about the video, but the audio is awesome and I will be posting that this coming weekend.
