Mini Mania Inc. Announces La Carrera Panamericana 2007 Race Entry - The First Late Model MINI Entry for the Event

Mini Mania Inc. announces the entry of the first BMW MINI Cooper S entry to the La Carrera Panamericana 2007 Mexican road race driven by Colin and Eric Herrick.

Nevada City, CA, August 30, 2007 --( Mini Mania Inc. announces the entry of a 2005 MINI Cooper S entry to the La Carrera Panamericana 2007 Mexican road race held between October 26, 2007 to November 1. Driven by the son and father team of Colin and Eric Herrick, Mini Mania expects their entry loaded with Mini Mania performance products will be the first late model MINI Cooper S to start and finish this prestigious race.

The La Carrera Panamericana is a 50 year-old vintage car race with over 100 entries for this year’s event. For only the second year, the Unlimited category will allow late model cars such as the Mini Mania 2005 MINI Cooper S to participate. The course is a grueling seven day, 1935 mile route that starts from Oaxaca in the tropical Southern Mexico and travels north through altitudes rising from sea level to almost 10,000 ft. with temperatures ranging from near freezing into the 90’s. The race finishes in Nuevo Laredo at the Texas Border. The changing environment is an added technical challenge to the already difficult route.

“This will be a true test of Mini Mania products on this extremely challenging and technical event,” said Don Racine, president of Mini Mania Inc. “Despite the high attrition rate for the Pan Am, our goal is to finish the race in the top 10 for our category.”
