(thats almost £15K in the 3 years we have put the event on)

 

Next years event is Sunday 3 July 2016. Camping will again be available on the Saturday night with prehaps a run out on Sat afternoon to the Haynes International Moror Muesum or the Fleet Air Arm Museum & Concorde which are both 15 mins away.

 

Thank you to the Mini Groups that came and Thank you to Bristol Mini Drifters for expert marshalling once again!
