MINI on the Charles River
MINI creates a sea worthy MINI convertible for the head of the Charles Regatta, attendees in Cambridge will be in for a sight that they weren't expecting. A nice red MINI convertible boat motoring along the Charles river, this MINI was built as a part of MINI USA Eastern Region's interpretation of Not Normal.
HOCR racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday (October 20 and 21) from 8 AM to 5 PM. This is the first year that MINI USA is an official sponsor of the HOCR. Since its origin in 1965, the HOCR has welcomed the world’s best crew teams to the banks of the Charles River for the ultimate two-day rowing competition. The event attracts over 9,000 athletes from around the world and 300,000 spectators. For additional race information, please visit: http://hocr.org/.
The MINI Convertible boat can be seen all weekend on the race course. Onsite media interview requests should be directed to Laura Towey, Department Head – MINI USA Eastern Region
