mini-thunder-viiMINI Thunder VII Updates.

First off it is now 2016 and MINI Thunder VII is just around the corner.

We ask all coaches to please register at We need to have valid numbers for coaching duties, t-shirts & sizes, lunches, and
scheduling. It only takes a minute or two

Secondly for those that are already registered as participants, you need to
start thinking about getting your Mini pre-teched. We have set up several
safety-tech inspection stations. These are FREE for the inspection. We ask
that you call first and make an appointment. This year we are asking that
you make sure your Mini is fitted with a tow hook. You should have one in

One change we have made for this year is holding the pre-registration dinner and Casino Night Party into town. We will be holding this activity at the Willows Roadhouse 610 South Tehama, Willows, CA 530-361-9180. The party is free to all participants and coaches. Dinner is $20 ea. and you will need to pay at the door. We will be posting the menu shortly. Having these
festivities at the Roadhouse will help eliminate the rush and crowding at
the clubhouse at Thunderhill. We will be able to set up much earlier in the
day and open registration about 4:00PM.

We will gain have the vendor tables with donated prizes for the Casino

For those of you that plan to come, please be sure to register now.

Also we welcome guests and MINI owner spectators for both the Casino Night and Sunday’s trackday. Its free to the fans and they will get to take
demo-hot laps with coaches, parade laps at lunch, and be included in the
group photo at the start/finish line on the main straight. So bring your

We have several extras planned for the weekend and we will keep you posted (also check the facebook group).

Our Prime Presenting Sponsor is Niello MINI of Sacramento. A big thanks goes out for their ongoing support of MINI Thunder and the Mini community. Niello has supported us from the very first day and we could not have done this without their help.
