The Present, the past and the futur of MINI Canada
On the last Saturday, October 14th, Jay Chevery was present at the Arsenal, a gorgeous? magnificent art gallery located in Griffintown district, to host the MINI INVASION event’s closing ceremony held by MINI Canada. During the day, drivers from all over Canada gathered on ICAR circuit in Montréal to perform a lap of honor with their wheel???. Various models offered in Canada were exposed, as well as vintage classics. MINI was both celebrating its 15 years of activities in the Canadian market and the country’s 150th anniversary at the same time. Montreal’s symbolic and historical significance made it the perfect venue for the nature of the event. It is at the Arsenal, an 80,000 square foot former shipyard, that celebrations took place. The guests were welcomed with a variety of food stations offering iconic Montreal dishes. Jay Chevery’s grand animation was followed by the Jungle Boogie Band which performed throughout the evening. Several awards were given; the price for the greatest distance traveled to attend the event was won by a couple who crossed 3,583km from Edmonton, Alberta to be there! The Coolest Classic MINI and the Best in Show and Designs were also some of the prices awarded. A wonderful evening for amateurs of cars and adventure!
