Due to Covid-19 lockdown our normal Himley Hall show could not take place… so we moved it on-line instead to our social media channels with the main competition on our Facebook page. Visitors were invited to ‘like’ their favourite Mini in 7 classes. Many were sharing amongst friends and all in all it was great fun. With Dave Macdiarmid telling us ‘ Congratulations to you all, and a big thank you to the BMC for a great bit of fun this weekend’
Here we go.. results are in for our first ever Virtual Himley Concours. An incredible 115 Mini’s of all ages entered an incredible 4905 votes were cast over the weekend. Many thanks to everyone for taking part today and enjoying the fun of sharing across social media.
