Brands Hatch will be celebrating all things 'Mini' when it hosts a major new event in the form of the Brands Hatch Mini Festival on 16-17 June.
With a history spanning more than 50 years, the Mini in its former and current guise is one of the most iconic cars of all time and the famous Kent circuit plans to commemorate the marque with a unique event in the summer. A superb line up of Mini-based motorsport is set to entertain spectators while Mini owners from across the country will be invited to showcase their cars around the 1.2 mile Indy circuit. There will be various off track activities with a display of special motorsport Minis old and new, a Mini stunt show, trade village, parades, live music and festival fun for motor racing fans throughout the weekend.
