The Coastal Maine Rally will be a non-profit rally will all proceeds going to the Patrick Dempsey Cancer Foundation. The Coastal Maine Rally, in association with Rally North America (or RNA) is organized with 3 things in mind. Cool cars, great memories, and raising money for charity. Where many rallies charge large fees for profit, Team PI aims to keep costs low with all proceeds going to the Patrick Dempsey Cancer Foundation. Not only will this rally be a memorable experience, but you will be driving for a cause. Driving, to cure.
The Coastal Maine Rally Details are each team will be given a card with checkpoints they must visit listed at the beginning of the day. Each team will need to stop at these checkpoints, (we hope you will anyway because they will be something you will want to take time to see) and have some form of proof you were there, such as a picture with you and/or your vehicle. Why will you need proof you were there? We are awarding cash prizes to the top 3 teams. These prizes will be awarded based upon your total rally miles. We will check the odometer of each car before and after the rally. The 3 teams with the shortest miles will receive a prize. We encourage you to take your time and really enjoy the stops we make along the way. Any traffic violations you receive on the rally will result in penalty's, so please, for your sake take your time and really enjoy the roads we will be driving on. This rally is stopping in many different locations, you may live in or near Maine but I assure you there will be something you have not seen before. So please, fuel up, drive safe, and have fun!

Thats good to hear! The only problem is we have been experiencing a lack of interest, so Ryan has been seriously considering calling this event off. If it is canceled we would still like to organise a smaller similar event to this where we will just cruise to a few places for a few hours one day. Please stay in contact though, hopefully interest will pick back up!
On a side note, I live in Brewer! What color is your Mini? I have a red/black 2003 which I put away for the winter, but it will be back on the road within a month. Maybe I will see you driving around!
Thanks for your response! We adopted a 2006 British Racing Green CS with a white roof. Last year of the old style. I am having a great time in it. Who do use for a mechanic, or are you your own mechanic? Please let me know if you put together the day trip you mentioned.
I'll have to keep my eyes open for it then! I prefer the old style myself, my uncle got a 2009 'vert and I prefer mine. I do all of the work on it myself. Problem with Maine is the closest Mini dealership is in Peabody, Mass. Ive made the trip down there 4 or 5 times but its so much easier to do my own thing. I'll definitely keep in contact with you about the trip! No matter how this one plays out Ryan and I will be taking my car down to WV to do another bigger rally this July.
