MINI and Miles Ahead Partner to Create Safer Teen Driving Practices

In an effort to address the growing concern of traffic accidents and fatalities among teenage drivers, Stephan Gregoire, an Indy 500 veteran, and business partner Ted Woerner, created Miles Ahead, a new experience for teen driving instruction.

MINI has partnered with Miles Ahead to make the program a major success.  MINI will provide 12 MINI Cooper Hardtops to the program to use for driving instruction.  The Miles Ahead driving instruction will take place at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“Teens tend to be more engaged in learning when there is an element of excitement,” said Stephan Gregoire, former Indy racing driver and founder of Miles Ahead. “The combination of using the fun-to-drive MINIs, racing champion instructors, maximizing time behind the wheel and a driving course at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway should really help us connect with the students and make a real difference in reducing their chances of being involved in collisions on public roads.”

MINI wanted to stay committed to providing the ultimate safety for passengers and drivers.  In addition to the safety of the MINI vehicle, MINI can help drivers learn proper driving habits as well to make roads safer.
