National Mini Cooper Day, Beaulieu - 10 Jun 2012



Minis in motor sport will be the theme of the Mini Cooper Register's 2012 National Day. Britain's biggest and best gathering of Minis takes places this year on Sunday 10 June at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in Hampshire.

As well as an impressive array of sporting Minis through the ages there will be the chance to meet some of the personalities who helped create the car's all-conquering reputation, driving them to victory in rallies and races.

If you want to see a genuine Works Mini, this event offers the best opportunity, with a strong turnout of ex-Works cars always on display, and if your tastes are more inclined to luxury than speed there is always an interesting selection of rare coach-built Coopers from Radford and Wood & Pickett to admire.

Adding to the variety this year will be British Leyland's successor to the Cooper S, the Mini Clubman 1275 GT, a new category of car that's been welcomed by the Mini Cooper Register. Rover Coopers and BMW's new MINI will also be well represented.

Plans are in hand to extend both the range and number of trade stands, particularly those offering autojumble, giving visitors more scope to source those increasingly hard to find parts for older Minis.

And for those whose first love in life is polishing their precious cars, there will be nine concours categories, catering for Minis of every era and specification. The commentary and interviews on the day will be provided by Graham Robson, the respected motoring author, historian and former Works co-driver.

“Last year we weren't blessed by good weather but the crowds still turned out in their thousands,” said Mini Cooper Register chairman, Robert Young. “For 2012 we're hoping the weather will be kinder and we are really planning to add significantly to the autojumble stands because we know people come to Beaulieu looking to buy parts as well as admire the many cars on display and meet fellow Mini and Cooper owners.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now. Booked in advance, admission is £9.75 (£5.00 for children aged 4 - 17). As well as saving money and time, these tickets offer the added advantage of swift and seamless entry to the show ground through a gate specifically reserved for advance ticket holders.

On-the-day admission for Mini/MINI owners will be £12.50 (£6.00 for children). For non-Mini/MINI owners admission will be £15.00 (£6.00 for children).

All tickets include admission to Beaulieu's famous National Motor Museum on 10 June. As well as its many historic exhibits, this year the museum includes a new display of James Bond cars.

Gates open 10am but they usually allow Mini owners in earlier to avoid queues. If you arrive in a Mini/MINI make sure you follow signs to the special Mini parking areas and not the general museum public parking.
