This weekend's Festival celebrates all things Mini, from the lovable classic to its modern incarnation. On track action will be solely devoted to the famous marque featuring races from the MINI Challenge, Mini Se7en, Mini Miglias, Pre-66 Minis, Mighty Minis and Super Mighty Minis. Old and new Minis will do battle on the track too, in a unique handicap race to decide which variant is best.
The Mini theme continues off track, with lots of Mini owners' club stands, a much-expanded trade village, rally demonstrations, a show and shine area, live music and more!
Legendary stunt driver Russ Swift will perform his unique array of tricks and manoeuvres in expanded shows taking place throughout the weekend. The world famous Red Devils parachute display team will be also dropping in for a flying visit.
