BRPT: Blue Ridge Parkway Tour 2016 (June 16 -19) – Waynesboro, VA to Cherokee, NC




The Tar Heel MINI Motoring Club's 8th Annual Blue Ridge Parkway Tour is June 16-19, 2016.

This year's BRP Tour, the 8th annual running, will start at the northern terminus of the BRP, near Waynesboro, VA. The Tour will kick off with a Welcome get-together meal on Thursday evening. Early Friday morning, we'll break up into our three groups - Bear, Wolf & Otter, heading south stopping at various overlooks and points of interest along the way.

Our first overnight stop will be Friday evening in Sparta, NC. The second overnight stop will be in Asheville, NC on Saturday evening. Sunday morning we'll hit the BRP for the final leg to the southern terminus of the BRP in the Cherokee, NC area. That should be about lunch time and everyone will go their separate ways with a ton of memories and stories!!

Please note: Our little club has grown so much that we do require registration for our major events. We collect a nominal fee during registration to cover the costs associated with the BRP Tour, and utilize registration numbers to book venues.

The BRP Tour is open to any MINI owner who shows up. But without registration, we can not guarantee you a seat at the welcome and celebration dinners. And really now, who would want to go to an event like this and not leave without a t-shirt, some stickers, a magnetic grille badge and other goodies?

We do ask that if you are planning to attend you register to help the organizers and volunteers prepare.

The Groups

As we have done in the past, we will use groups to help participants experience the BRP Tour in a way that best suits their goals for the journey.

The groups are:


Bear Group - this group will travel the BRP at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops to take in the scenery. Expect minimal excursions off the BRP. But lots of time in fellowship with other MINI owners. The plan is to be unrushed and take in the beauty of the BRP.


Wolf Group - this group will have a mix of everything. Stops for scenery, some spirited runs, some leisurely stretches, some off-BRP add-ons. This group is for those more interested in the experience than in sticking to a schedule or seeing any particular place. Be ready for the unexpected and willing to roll with changes.


Otter Group - this group will really focus on the twisties. This means there will likely be several off-BRP add-ons, possibly at the expense of some overlooks and maybe even missing a mile or two of the BRP. It is anticipated that most runs, especially stuff off the BRP, will be done in a spirited manner.
