The 15th Annual MINIs on the Dragon!

Posted by Andrew Snyder on


The 15th annual MINIs on the Dragon is approaching soon! From May 3rd-7th, Miniacs and their beloved Minis will be taking over the Tail of the Dragon. 

What is the Tail of the Dragon?

The Tail of the Dragon is an 11 mile stretch of US 129 between North Carolina and Tennessee. This road is popular among motorcycle riders and sports car drivers alike. The curves are plentiful (there are 318 of them!) and many of them are banked, making for an exhilarating driving experience. This road is also known for being one of the most dangerous driving roads, as overenthusiastic riders of the Dragon can be made to look foolish by the road's relentless curves. Wildlife and mother nature can also play a part in making the Dragon a dangerous proposition.

MINIs on the Dragon

What better way to experience a road full of twists and turns than in a Mini, right? That's exactly what almost 1,000 Mini owners are thinking as they get ready to head to Deal's Gap for the 15th annual Minis on the Dragon. The event is being hosted at Fontana Village and numerous Mini-themed events are planned. We are excited to be one of the Vendors at this year's Dragon! We'll be bringing an R53 to take part in the driving events. Make sure to stop by our tent on vendor row and meet the ALLMAG team!
