"There will be plenty to see and do at the 2019 Brands Hatch Mini Festival. On the track there will be a packed programme exclusively made up of Mini racing featuring both classic and modern iterations. Off track there will be plenty of entertainment surrounded by every kind of Mini imaginable with club displays, trade stands, a Sunday track parade, live music and much more!"

For me the event is no where near as good as it used to be when all Mini/MINIs arriving and the driver got inside the circuit for free, tickets are now £25 per person and after 9am Minis are sent to the general parking areas unless pre-booked in, so the Mini show side is not as well supported or organised as before and the few Mini traders present struggle for customers. Weather forecast on Saturday may also have put off some and the Sunday (today) is usually better attended plus weather is sunny. Also the lack of any Historic Mini races in recent years has not helped the event with some non-Mini single seater racing added to pad out the day. The Mini Sevens, Mini Miglias and Mighty Mini's provided close, exciting races as usual with a few incidents on Paddock Hill Bend!

Why no trade stands..?? Was planning to get some bits and no traders. Bizzarre.. Brands hatch gotta rethink this one.. 25 quid a bit steep also. Enjoyed the racing from the proper minis.

My investigation into the ownership of the track points towards a few individuals creaming off the profit and getting away with charging crazy prices for normal products /services. Fish and chips a tenner!!!!! Criky no wonder the vulnerable Voted for breggs#it!!

Get ya act together brands!!

My favourite bit used to be the pre 66 challenge, shame it doesn't happen anymore. Lovely day Sunday though.
