Get Ready For A Meeting Of The (International Mini) Minds


For this month’s Miniology Radio Show we will be going International, with a world-wide panel of Mini celebrities. We will be featuring a cast of Mini folks from all over the world, in a round table discussion of all things Mini.

Stay tuned to this space for details.

Miniology International, better than a spy ring!

One Cool Month, Two HOT Events!

2013-09-19 00.18.37

October… Cool weather returns, the leaves turn, the smell of Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the air…

And two, count ’em, TWO big MINI events that Miniology is a part of.

Join us on Saturday October 12th at Seven Enterprises for their annual Open House, in Auburn, Ca. Miniology will netcast LIVE from the scene, providing you with great entertainment for the venue. We’ll have cool Mini stuff, hot music and if you stop by the Miniology booth, you just might win one of our great new t shirts, hand made by Expression Graphix.

Then, on Saturday October 19th, join us for the great Mini Lucky Truckee Run. We’ll start out at MiniMania in Nevada City at 10 am and head off to all points mountain!

Two ending spots: Truckee, Ca. and So. Lake Tahoe, Nv. (if you are not a sissy).
We will have stops in beautiful, historic Downieville, home of the hangman’s gallows, and Squaw Valley Resort along the way.
We are inviting all of the local area clubs to join in, as well as our NorCal area Mini dealerships.
This tour of the historic gold country and our beautiful Lake Tahoe is not to be missed!
Start planning now, and tell all of your Mini friends!

Join us for both!

Let’s Play The Match Game!

OK, Miniologists, we need your help! On an upcoming edition of the Miniology Radio Show, we will be playing our own version of The Match Game. We want you all to think up great questions, the kind that Gene Rayburn would have asked, but they must be MINI related.

Here is an example:

“Dumb Dora is sooooo dumb, that when her service advisor told her that she needed a new dipstick, she went out and bought a ______________.

So, post your ideas for questions here and we’ll use the best ones. Put on your thinking caps and think Nipsey Russell.


MINI UK Responds To Published “Spy Pics” Of New Mini

Spy Photo of a MINI so ugly they kept it covered.

Miniology has a policy of not letting goodies out of the bag too early, so you won’t see the so-called spy pics of unreleased Mini’s here.

Patience is a virtue.

Here is Mini UK’s release regarding these types of pictures…

Oxford. Aggressive and relentless papping is something British celebrities have had to learn to live with. Members of the Royal Family, as well as actors, footballers and top models are all familiar with the sensation of being caught in uncompromising situations, and now MINI is the latest victim. Absolutely unaware and without make-up, the youngest member of our family was caught by sensationalist photographers in a highly private moment. The young one was yellow and completely defenceless. We understand the worldwide interest in our family but it is not the British way to send such unfavourable pictures around the globe.

But like a good stiff-upper-lipped Brit, MINI shall not complain, although we would like to officially state that we are not flattered. The published pictures do not reflect our good looks any way. As every celebrity knows, those extra long telephoto lenses have the devastating ability to negatively distort all surfaces, lines and angles. Therefore our advice: next time come closer to the object of desire. If that doesn’t work, don’t worry, shortly you will have the opportunity to experience the MINI up close and personal, and to take pictures from all angles.

Miniology To Cover Twini Twin Engine Mini Testing


The Miniology Media Team will be at Sonoma Raceway (aka Infineon/Sears Point) to cover Jacques Andres’ Bay Bridge Bimmers and MMini’s TWINI – the Twin engine R53 Enduro MINI for day 2 of testing. This MINI puts out a reported 520 HP and is designed to run at the top in the 85-100 car field for this December’s 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Come out and join us. Test days are free admission.

This will be a work day for the race team as they will be concentration on getting the car adjusted so they would like to limit any interviews and crowding around the car for designated times so they can concentrate of the car.

Jacques will be giving fans plenty of time to hear about the project and will do a Q&A session.

We welcome anyone that wants to come out and watch.
BUT they will ask everyone to please keep back.
Please bring a camera and take loads of photos and pass the word to any of your friends.
