Inaugural Mini Festival is underway at Brands Hatch!

Monday, May 28 2012

The inaugural Brands Hatch Festival is underway, and hundreds of Minis are filling the car parks, club display areas and the race track!

The event takes place today (Saturday) and tomorrow, with the hub of the action on the world-famous Indy circuit, which plays host to 12 Mini races across the two days. Racing from the MINI Challenge, Mini Miglia, Mini Se7en and Pre-66 Minis will cater for enthusiasts of both the classic and modern variants, whist support races include the GT Cup Championship and the Radical UK Cup. The track will also play host to a series of parades from Mini car clubs, demonstrations of world famous 'iconic' Minis, plus a stunt show from the legendary Russ Swift tomorrow.

Away from the circuit a live action area will see further shows from Russ on Sunday, plus 'Britain's Got Talent' TV star John Evans - who will balance an entire Mini on his head! Show and Shine competitionse will also be held in the live action area behind Pit Straight grandstand, whilst there will be a spectacular aerobatic air display on the Sunday too. Historic rally cars will be performing on the rally course at Brands Hatch both days.

A live music stage will entertain long onto the night on the Saturday, whilst Mini car clubs from across Europe will be displaying their finest vehicles all around the venue across the two days. Kids 11 and over can even drive a MINI for £30 with our YoungDrive taster sessions.

You can find more information on this dedicated Mini Festival website and Facebook Page, including the latest timetable, venue map and details on all the activities confirmed across the weekend.

Tickets are available on the gate for £21 on both days. Kids 12 and under go free. There is special parking inside the venue for all Mini owners. For more information click here.
