Well done Paul, as I said I'd run into you lot and I did exactly that on the Roundabout junction with A40 from Cirencester. Nice road the Fosse way, built with MINI's in mind Dashed clever these Romans!
Sorry I could'nt stop, other stuff to do, and I've been in the heritage centre so many times now I could catalogue it in my sleep, hope you all had a good day

a great success for the first run for Bristol and Ex Avon MINI group.
thanks for all those involved for making it a great day out. for those who i didnt have chance to chat with, i was the car that went speeding past u on the m4, with the video camera in the front screen.
Ive captured about an hours worth of actual run footage and about the same of guided tour / my wanderings at the motor industry heritage museum. when i get my desktop pc fixed i will start the editing process and anyone who went on the run can have a copy
Shame it rained at the end of the day. Thoughts go out to Jeep-Mini who had a nasty burnout on his model RC mini cooper and the guy who was infront of me in the run who was suffering from lack of "vava-voom" when over taking... anyway we made it to gaydon in one piece without any lost MINI's.
GOMINI magazine was present and hopefully there will be some of the rather good pictures (if somewhat daredevil) in a future. judging by the quantity of pictures taken and chatting with the chaps it looks like we may be in a future issue.
i will post up a few pics of some of the minis from the museum later this evening.

Heres a few of my snaps of minis from inside the museum.
the cooperS on the left is a rover mini. an american punter tried to buy this off the museum for half a million quid! sadly these cars are not for sale..
Our tour guide was a great old chap, used to work at the BMC plant and was spinning plenty of stories about isigonis / John cooper / paddy hopkirk. all this is on video and will be available for download when edited
