Greetings!

The Aviano MINI Owners Klub will likely be attending this year's Speed Day for British and Italian cars at Monza, Italy on February 13, 2005. We went last year and had a great time. Not only were there a large number of MINIs there, but we also saw (and raced) quite a few different types of cars (Lotus, TVR, ...).

We will likely spend the night before the event in Milan somewhere. Would be a good chance to get to know some more MINI2ers!

Probably some of the only ones with tinted windows as well. :D

you have to enter the site www.speedday.it, click on the button “iscrizioni al raduno” (it’s only in Italian), fill in the form that appears, choose the date 13 February and send it. You will be automatically registered. On the 13th morning, at entrance of circuit, you will receive a pass with which you will be able to purchase an entrance ticket at 3 € (any additional person will have to pay full ticket (5 €). After entering into the paddock, you will have to go to the track office and purchase a ticket at 30 € for one hour in the track. There will be two sessions only of one hour each: one at 10.30 am, the other at 11.30 am. In the afternoon you can get access to the track, but the cost will be 30 €/30’. At around noon, prizes will be awarded. With the pass you can get a discount for lunch.

I have just done this.....de link "iscriziono al raduno" is on the left of the hme page screen. It will take you to another page that has a link called: MODULO DI ISCRIZIONE

All the more reason for us to be there. I am starting to drum up interest in our club here, but will make a big push for it after the first of the year.

Looks great

Looks like you guys had a great time - one or two hairy moments out there on the track though!

The guy in the Blue Cooper must have really loved the dude in the spinning Lancia - brown trousers time! And the Pepper white gets a nice bit of oversteer going!

Also is this PKT RKT?

I am very jealous - will need to be there next year!

This event was an absolute BLAST :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

AND.....what a deal......30 Euros for one hour at Monza....you reach top speed 4 times per lap.....just an awesome track......this is definetely a MUST DO.
My thanks to the AMOK guys for bringing news of the event to this site.
The MINI club Italia guys were all very friendly, and they have some hyper cool drives as well, not to mention the AMOK guys who all seem to have Orciari kits on their mean machines.

The event had maybe 500 or 600 cars (not all of them went on the track) but to see scads of Alfas, Fiats, MG's, Lotuses and MINI's galore, including some awesome classics, was prety cool.
The "Custom Cars" which were there for the Concours´d´Elegance were something else as well.

PKT RKT ran great (til it ran out of gas and had to limp in for a fill up)!
The leading BRG in the picture of the two BRG's is definetely PKT RKT.

This is a NOT TO BE MISSED EVENT.

Ohhhh yeahhhhh!!! I had a blast!!!!

I was not planning on going on the track, but the moment I stepped onto the bleachers and saw everyone racing I could not resist. I got on @ 1130. My copilot Daron Hankins was the camera man. At least now I have three pics of my Mini on the track. The ones my wife took are all blurred. Thanks to who ever for posting them. This was my first time ever on a racing track. Awesome time....

IAwesome time....
Love the blacked out windows and the bodykit/wheel combination.

The more I see of this event the more I wished I dragged myself across the Channel for it!

Next year is going to be a must (anyone for Monza, Spa and the Ring :D )
