That can only mean one thing - (or a few things actually)! Dirty, sloppy mud, lots of puddles, and brave the cold! We need horrible weather the night before :eek: :p

And a prize for the driver of the MINI voted dirtiest at the end of the run. But you have to have a clean MINI at the start!

Event Judge
Lady Alison of Derek Woodman MINI. :D

Run Info (to be updated as we go along):

Chitchat and photos: 9.15am onwards.

(Please register with Alison as soon as you arrive. Please note that run notes will be given to you when you register).

Brief walkthrough of run - 10.25am-ish
Start time: 10.30am-ish from Welcome to Derek Woodman authorised MINI dealership

Lunchstop - Barton Grange Garden Centre - The Riverside Café

Finish - Welcome to Derek Woodman authorised MINI dealership

The route - about 70 miles of some of the finest twisty roads in Lancashire.

Some things to be aware of:

Don't get to Derek Woodman before 9.15 as the gates will be shut.
Fuel is available at the big Tesco on the other side of the M55 roundabout.
This will not be as nippy as usual - instead we will be focussing on dirt and puddles :p
The event will include some classic twisties from LL1 together with some new roads.

As always conditions of joining the event include:

Good to see some interest - this is a run with a difference of course which is why I've picked the middle of a Northern winter for it :p.
