Favourite Kind Of Mini Run?
Posted 17 November 2023 - 07:37 AM
Having been involved with minis for several years I have been involved with numerous shows.
Just wondered what your favourite show/events are.
Are there any events that you would recommend trying out.
Road runs. Usually involve chips or ice cream.
Castle tours (joys of being in Scotland we have heaps.)
Show's with auto jumble and traders?
Mix of mini and other cars shows?
Road navigational runs to various points
Treasure hunts with clues.
Scavenger hunts. (Collecting various random things-doing random tasks)
Looking to organise a few events for 2024.
Maybe even encourage minis further a field than normal to brave the North East of Scotland to attend..
All help great fully appreciated.

navigational runs. We do them at night which is even more difficult.

Treasure hunts with our children, in the 80s, bring back happy memories.
I had great fun organising some on the 60s. If I could find a multiple (5 way) junction, I'd get people coming back through it from different directions.

Static mini shows aren't the same anymore, gone are the days of individuality and respect for one another's styling choice and hard work. Compare a mini show to 15 years ago, even with the rose tinted specs off.
Imo it's just gone.
Hate forced 'fun', an event is good without forcing it.
to be honest I very rarely do any classic or mini car shows, Capesthorne Classic show a few years back was the final straw for me, parked up with grumpy marchals, never wanted to go from a show as i'm parking up, utter dire.
Bicester Heritage & Goodwood have been the saviour for me recently though. Totally refreshing.

12 car Club evening events. A thrash around local lanes.

Everyone there to share the spirit the bygone days and even the clothing from when life was alot simpler...
Why make thing difficult when it is easier just to be nice and welcoming....
Let us enjoy a lovely car in lovely scenery..

I used to like the weekend at avon park, sit about having a laugh in tents, bit of a bbq, some beers and watching people rag the sh.t out of their cars up the 1/4mile
see some really special quick stuff as well
that was a good few years back though when there was plenty of variety
not really so interested in Brands, where it's just rows of original spec cars all polished up and looking the same as each other (nice, but no variety), and a hundred identical BMW's straight off the forecourt (about as exciting as the local ASDA carpark) but watching some proper racing is nice so swings and roundabouts
to be honest really I think I'd prefer something that isn't 100% mini, just a general classic car meet, open up to other manufacturers but say only pre 1990 or something, everything else just parks in the carpark outside out of view, that's just my preference though im sure others have other interests
