I don't know Rob personally, but I've heard of what he does.

Please spread the word folks, we need to have this event full! The track has cost me £4800 to hire for the day, so 100 cars there at £60 each nets us a nice profit for charity :)

Any MINI or Mini is welcome - both my F57 JCW and 1998 Cooper Sports LE will be there as pace/safety cars :) We also have an F56 JCW, and a GP1 to lead cars round.

Here's my Cooper Sport, outside the McLaren hospitality suite, which is next to where we'll be on the day :)

I'm booked. Need to pay. Look forward to seeing you there. Wonder if SCBC would like to pitch up with an appearance and contribute. I'll give him a heads up. My eldest son started SCBC with Rob. He left after it going. Hence I know a bit about them!
Do you like the boiler suits and flat hats? When they stop on tours in London they get completely surrounded by tourists taking pics.

Would be great if they wanted to join us, the day will have a strong Italian Job theme, so would fit in well :)

Interesting question Monkeys. I'd thought probably not as it doesn't seem to be an out and out track day. I haven't.

I'm torn on this - I doubt we'll be going anywhere near fast enough to have a problem but you never know. Only takes one idiot to crash into you to ruin your day. I'm thinking that it's probably worth the £85 I've been quoted just to buy some insurance just in case.

Just got home from this, what an absolutely blummin' brilliant day. Perfect weather, awesome cars, both new and old, great fun on the track and we got to meet some lovely people too. What more could you want.

Thanks for organising this.

Yes, brilliant fun. As you say, cars, weather, good company. Excellent. A blast. And it raised some reasonable dosh for the charity. First chance I've had to spank my R53 with decent(ish) tarmac and no-one coming the other way. Oh dear, standard R53 brakes! Got to go.
I found Brassd and we had a good chat. We did a 'whine check' of my Orranje Stealth. Think he wants one! Looked around for you Monkeys but couldn't find you. There were some MT guys there who I know with their extremely rapid motors, doing the fast track.

It was great to meet you Nigel. Your car drives sweet. I need the stealth airbox, and to tighten up the handling.

Great fun. Thanks to the organisers.

Thanks for your work organising this Minicabrio and doing the pace cars. I've just got my pictures. And I've bought a set of R56 Cooper S TRW callipers and carriers to sort the brakes. Not fitted yet. Getting them done in discrete BRG by Bigg Red, to match the car.
