Brooklands Mini Day Sunday, March 25, 2012

All types of Mini (including the modern BMW MINI) are invited to this annual event, so expect displays in all areas of the Museum grounds. We had just over 1,000 Minis on site last year and we are hoping to squeeze in at least as many, if not more this year.

As in previous years, Test Hill will be in action with both morning and afternoon runs - places are limited and advanced booking is required. We will also be holding a ‘Show N Shine’ competition with 10 vehicle classes and prizes will be awarded for the top two cars in each class. Booking forms for both of the above events can be requested from Donna Hopton using the contact details below.

A – Mini 1959 – 1969: All standard Minis and derivatives produced in this period
B – Mini 1970 – 1979: All standard Minis and derivatives produced in this period
C – Mini 1980 – 1989: All standard Minis and derivatives produced in this period
D – Mini 1990 – 2001: All standard Minis and derivatives produced in this period
E – MINI 2001 - Present: All makes and models of standard New MINIS
F – Commercial Classics: Mokes, Pickups and Vans
G – Highly Modified classics
H – Mildly Modified classics
I – Modified New MINIS: All new MINIs that have undergone a modification
J - Elfs & Hornets of any age

New for this year, we will be holding a Best Dressed Club Stand competition with a 60s theme, and a number of gifts will be given to random Minis on entry to the Museum. You never know, it could be you..!
We are currently taking Club and Trade Stand bookings and already have a number of pitches booked. If you are interested in a Club stand or Trade pitch, please contact Donna for more information.
We are also working on the details of a surprise event and will provide more information as soon as plans have been finalised, so check the Museum website regularly for the latest news.

Latest news from Brooklands:
"From the oldest to the newest, this years event will see some of the earliest Minis, including a 1959 Austin Saloon, to the launch by Cooper Cobham of the latest BMW MINI Roadster, nestling among the hundreds of Minis and their variations such as Vans, Pickups and Mini Mokes parked within the Museum grounds. In addition, the Classic Touring Car Racing Club will be in attendance for the first time at this event where they will have on show four of the earliest race prepared Mini Coopers from the 1960s.

This year, the Museum in association with the London and Surrey Mini Owners Club, sponsored by MiniSpares and Palmer Brothers, will attempt to set a world record for the fastest build of a Classic Mini. The car has been stripped down into modular parts and the team of eight will attempt to rebuild the vehicle replicating the production line at Longbridge, before racing the car up the legendary 1:8 Test Hill. The car, a 1990 Mini Flame Red, will be raffled at the end of the day."

Usually at least a 1000 classic and new Minis attend, Mini's should enter by the Campbell Gate post code for SatNavs KT13 0QN

Weather is looking great for this tomorrow!
