The Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) will join MINI of Grand Rapids and owners of Mini Cooper automobiles from all over the country as they rally and attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest parade of MINIs. The MINI rally will take place on Aug. 3 and will culminate with a mass crossing of the Mackinac Bridge, the world’s third-longest suspension bridge.
“We gladly support this attempt at a new world record highlighting Michigan’s iconic Mackinac Bridge,” said MBA Administrator Bob Sweeney. “We will do whatever we can to make their crossing safe, secure, and memorable — as they attempt to break the Guinness World Record.”
The current world record for the most Mini Coopers in a parade is 1,450.
The MBA and event planners encourage all MINI owners to use social media and other methods to spread the word.
