This year the focus was channelled towards the 50th anniversary of the legendary Mini Cooper S as the Brands Hatch Mini Festival, in association with Mini Sport UK, kicked off over the weekend.
Back with a bite, the legendary Brands Hatch circuit put on a great display and celebration of all things Mini. Classic Austin Mini’s of the late 1950’s through to its modern day successor were high in abundance.
Track action drew in the crowds with solely devoted shows to the Mini in 2013. Mighty Minis, Super Minis and a battle between old and new took place to determine which variation was best!
Alongside a superb race schedule, there were many Mini-themed activities for the whole family to enjoy throughout the day; a Mini stunt show courtesy of Russ Swift, live music, rally demonstrations as well as the famed show and shine competitions.
Mini clubs from across the UK and Europe were encouraged to showcase their pride and joy with the chance to take part in parade laps around the track. Meanwhile celebrity chef James Martin succeeded in his first ever race win at the festival and was crowned the 2013 Champion of Mini Festival!
Whichever Mini you prefer, there was only one place to be on 22nd and 23rd June 2013.
