Performance Direct were proud sponsors of Mini in the Park 2012 at Santa Pod Raceway. Held this year on Sunday 12 August, it was an event not to be missed. With the weather unusually sunny for a British summers day , the festival welcomed owners of classic Minis, new Minis and Mini Clubs, as well as other car fans of all ages.
Mini in the Park (MITP) boasted an action packed day with a number of competitions to keep its guests entertained, from Mini Run-What-Ya-Brung to the Win-A-Mini competition, ‘Fireforce’ Jet car, Monster Truck live action, Aerobatic display and much more.
The day was bursting with entertainment, with special guests including Terry Grant who performed live Mini stunts in the Action Arena. Terry, the renowned daredevil stunt driver, currently holds numerous world records and, as a well known celebrity in the motoring world, was quite a big attraction himself!
One of the show highlights was a visit to Concours Corner (Show ‘N’ Shine) to see the best British Classic Minis and the New Minis competing to win some prestigious MITP silverware, which was presented by Performance Direct’s Marketing Director Matthew Collett.
