Mini Thunder IV

Hello MINI Thunder Participants,

Things are moving ahead with MINI Thunder Down Under in Buttonwillow on August 23 2014. We are getting all of the track details, lunches, instructors, and support crews in line.

Here is the link to our registration page here on

Registration is now open so please check it out.

One of the priorities for many is EATING so we made lunch a priority. Here is what we have planned:

A Taco bar lunch will be served at the Tower Cafe ( first floor of the Tower building) and there is a covered patio with picnic tables located directly outside the dining room in case you wish to dine outside..

Pork Carnitas
Chicken Fajitas
Tortillas ( flour and corn)
Rice, Beans, Guac
Chips & Salsa
Fresh Fruit for Dessert

Next is that we are looking for coaches as we expect a large crowd from the SoCal Area. If you have coached for MINI Thunder in the past and would like to do so for this event. Please send me a PM or email at . If you have not coached but have qualifications please let us know.

Also we will be contacting potential sponsors, pre-tech stations, and vendors, if you know of anyone interested again please let us know.

We will keep you all posted with updates as the activities are confirmed.

We have also set up an new stand alone website for MINI Thunder events and it will be up and running next week. In the meantime you can go to our Facebook page for further information.
