Brooklands Mini Day this year is on Sunday 25th March 2018.

In addition to the obviuosly huge number of Minis of all sorts, the exhibits at the museums are really interesting, lots to see and do.

It's a great museum the Concorde is a must see imo, you can go inside, even sit down and see how much legroom your 5 grand ticket would've got you

I'm often very close by to there will try and make a trip coincide with the 25th

Just got home

Was a mind blowing event the entire museum was just carpeted in Minis. I wouldn't even try to guess how many were there but it overflowed well onto the old race track to the extend that the late comers had to park on the cambered area (which to give you an idea of the steepness, I drove on to so I could reverse into position, and stalled) and use chocks to stop them rolling down!!!

Tried to find Mini2 cars including Nigel's BRG Cooper S but I didn't come across any (that mentioned being on the forum anyway). Actually followed a 2003-4 BRG R53 into the place who turned out to be someone else

Pics to follow when I upload them just posting this quick message

A few pics

A few hundred meters from the entrance I ended up behind a load of very tuned Minis all making loud crackles and pops and custom number plates with words like "REKT" guessing I bumped into MiniTorque
