Some really awesome racing by the Miglias & Pre66’s, and almost felt sorry for the bimi owners as there was no bimi racing to be seen, and whilst I appreciate that MSV are trying to accommodate a lot this year… slotting in F3 and the golfs was like watching paint dry.

I was there, a good day out for the money... but.... out of interest.. fastest mini in the world race.. how do they define a mini... to me... it would be.. A series or A + block and gearbox casing..... then do what you want.... but an audi Quatro with a Mini silouette on it is hardly a mini....

Had a great day at the Brands Hatch Mini Festival yesterday, nice to go to a 'normal' event once again and meet up with old friends from the world of Mini racing after the year of lockdowns. I think it works much better as a single day event with a race in the morning and a second race after the lunch break for most classes, making it good value for the £25 entrance ticket (especially for us senior citizens @ £20).  :D
Despite no modern MINI races at this years event (I think they support the British Touring Car Championship) it looked to me like the impressive turnout and variety of mainly modified BMW MINI's and MINI Clubs far outnumbered the classic Minis on show for the first time.
A few photos below from the show areas and the race paddock below....

A very rare 'Tilling' converted Mini....looked to be a great restoration project, not seen any other survivors for many years.
