3rd Annual Motoring through the Hills of Texas – Friday, September 24th through Saturday the 25th
Here is your chance to experience some true “Hill Country” roads out near San Antonio / Bandera / Fredericksburg areas.
The drive consists around twisty, curvy, hilling, roads made for MINIs! There is a professional photographer outfit stationed along some of the drive route that will give you an opportunity to purchase photos of your MINI and You in full Motoring action! You can learn more about TxMotoFoto at their website, www.TxMOTOFOTO.com.
The route and starting place will be posted by July. Plan to start at 9 AM and wrap things up by 4 PM on Saturday, September 25th.
There is an informal gathering Friday night for those that are arriving on Friday. We will meet at the Sonic Drive In located in Boerne.

With that said, Friday evening is unofficially the start of the event. For those that are driving in from other parts of Texas you may wish to arrive on Friday night and stay near the Bandera, Texas area. There are a few local Bandera motels to consider would down the road from the starting point for the Saturday, September 25th drive. Alternatively, approximately 35 minutes away on I-10 you my consider lodging at Exit 539 or 540.
There is a La Quinta hotel at Exit 539. There are no group rates at any of the hotels, basically you are on your own if you wish to get lodging. The La Quinta is the official choice of MINIFunDrives for Friday night, September 24th and Saturday, September 25th.. Because there are no group rates, nor a set of rooms blocked, you should make your reservation sooner than later.
