ACI Composites Inc. from Lancaster, PA, constructed the water bound spectacle from fiberglass and mounted onto a boat hull. They then proceeded to deck out the replica with authentic Mini accessories (wheels, tires, grille, badges, steering wheel, etc.).

The Mini will be the only powered vessel on the waters and will serve as safety control for the thousands of rowers participating in the HOCR. The competition is said to draw 9,000 of the world’s best rowers and achieve well over 300,000 spectators. The race will take place October 20 and 21 starting at Boston University Boathouse and finish at Christian Herter Park.
