New Zealand Heeeeeellllllllpppppppp!!!!!!!

Hi guys and gals.
I'm hoping someone here might be able to help me.
I'm bringing a tour group to the UK for a 24 day self drive tour of the UK.
We've called it The Brits Job - which is a take on the old Michael Caine movie The Italian Job, and that's because we want to do it in Minis (new ones not 60's models!).
Thought that would be easy, but now we have 11 couples who want to tour, we're finding it hard to find a company who can hire us 11 minis!! We do have a budget of 60-70 per day and need the cars for 17 days. One of the group is a TV producer who wants to turn the tour into a doco, which I think is a very cool idea. Can anyone recommend a company who might be able to help us out? Would be a real shame to have to do this tour in Japanese cars😂
Any help gratefully received.
All the best
Col
The Brits Job Tour (maybe in minis)

Im not surprised, is the problem price, availability of cars or the fact it sounds like a race?

Also you only want Red White and Blue MINIs? and all hatches, to be authentic like the film with Charlize Theron in it ?

My only suggestion would be large car hire firms with lots of branches, as they may have access to 11 minis. Also, and this is a long shot, but try contacting mini themselves, the press dept, and mention the doc? They might offer to lend you some?
