What is MINITRA?
In 2016 we decided to enhance our MINI scene and give you the opportunity to see what Nitra and its surroundings have to offer. An ideal occasion to discover something new.
That’s how MINITRA was born. Rally based upon a made up plan, weird itinerary or almost useless map where you don’t chase the time but explore new places, meet new people and create new friendships. Our goal was, is and always will be to show you Nitra and its surroundings from a nontraditional point of view. And hopefully, it won’t be boring. Therefore the rally is full of tasks and surprises and it is not always obvious where it will lead you or what will come next. That’s why we call it de-orientation rally. Apart from that, MINITRA always takes on a different theme to entertain you in even more unexpected ways.
Since 2018 we have been residing at Ranch Nový dvor since it offers nice accommodation for reasonable prices. That’s why we were able to extend the meeting for a full weekend and at the same time add a night rally on Friday which brings you a chance to get lost in the dark while enjoying spectacular night views of Nitra.

Answer to life, the universe and everything
The theme of this year is – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. That means the tasks you will find on the track of the navigation (deorientation) rally will be based on this book (movie) by Douuglas Adams. So prepare your towel, Babelfish, sad robot, improbability drive, bowl of Petunias, the whale… And don’t forget to bring your Peril Sensitive Sunglasses :-.)
NEW!!!: Crew with themed clothing and/or themed decorations (applies to MINI too), will get special points in the game!
Starting fee is 25€ per car. We’d like to point out that having at least one navigator may come as an advantage. 🙂
Starting fee includes navigation rally on Friday and Saturday, starting number plate, stickers, gifts and much more.
Payment possible in cash at the meeting or via bank transfer – more information available in the registration form.
