Mini Fest 2015 – Results

What a great day that was. With Christina Moran winning Best Mini/MINI Of The Day and a cheque for £250. Her recently restored Mini Cooper S Downton really is stunning. Although when they purchased the very rough Mini it still had all the Downton items. Most had to restored or part remanufactured. Though the Downton did have it easy to win the coveted prize. Steve Moore with his remarkable GP ran her a very close second. We had quite a long debate amongst ourselves as to who to choose from the class winners. Eventually we had to call on one of our Premier judges to go and have another look around both of the cars. They were literally seperated by the condition of one bolt head. It really was that close.


Well done to everyone involved the competition moves up a level every single show. How good was it to see an quite rare in the UK Australian spec Mini Clubman S, The Aussies certainly had far better interior trim the models available in the UK. Though it does make it harder to source as well. What about those two GP2 girls Helen Granger and Sarah Wixon. Both MINI’s are top quality and very soon they will win the class and get through to the red carpet. Then the gloves will be off! Remember all class winners go through to the Premier Final at Mini Fair 2 at Stonleigh on October 18th.


Show N Shine was excellent this year with more Mini’s entered. We also moved them from the grandstand area into the main show area, which looked far better. Everyone looked to be enjoying themselves and enjoyed voting for a winner. This will certainly be a regular part of future British Mini Clubs events.


Did you enjoy the live arena? We certanly did it was great fun with so much interaction from the crowd. Highlight of the arena was possibly the loudest exhaust, That was great fun with both Men and ladies getting very involved. Starting with 110db from a very tasty MINI Cooper S right up to 126db from a Honda powered Mini from Mansfield. Even a young 14 year old was taking part in his very own Mini. Fantastic to see the younger element enjoying the Mini.

With a 17yr old and a stuning Sportspack Mini entering loudest horn with Colonel Bogey being beaten by a cow horn! great fun. The ICE was a close run thing. With the owner of the Red Sportspack saying the Mini next to him would win as he had more power. Er no he didn’t. But he certainly gave it a good go.
