Mini maniacs comes to Mugello!

Are you a MINI lover? Would you like to visit Tuscany? There is a special event waiting for you! This year the official Mini cars meeting (IMM 2013) will be held in the Mugello area, Tuscany, from May 16 to 19. This event will gather approximately 3,000 people and, unlike the previous ones, it is also addressed to the owners of the new MINI and not only to the owners of the old model.

You can participate to the Innocenti Mini Parade and Contest and to the Auto Test drive and then there is a party all night long!

The Camping Area is located close to Scarperia and at about 2 miles from the main entrance of the Mugello Circuit. There is plenty of space for tents or caravans and trailers and Mini's (which may be parked next to the tents) and the area is mostly green, with many trees. There will be on- site security at all times as well as first aid stations open 24/7.

The location itself is fascinating; the Mugello area indeed spreads from northern Florence to the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. It's a territory full of history and can be the occasion to visit beautiful villas and castles of the Medici and Lorraine families. Moreover, there are numerous country parish churches, abbeys and small museums. The Mugello area is the perfect place for sport and nature lovers: just think about the famous Mugello International Race Track and the sports you can practice in the Bilancino Lake, like competitive fishing, windsurfing, canoeing and sailing.
