The legendary Brands Hatch circuit in Kent will once again host the Brands Hatch Mini Festival on 16/17 July with a bigger and better festival lined up for 2016! The event is a celebration of all things Mini from the classic Austin Mini of the late 1950s to its modern hatchback incarnation. All are welcome to join in the fun!

On track action will be solely devoted to the Mini with the Mighty Minis and Super Mighty Minis joining the superb race schedule provided from the MINI Challenge, Mini Se7en, Mini Miglias and Pre-66 Minis. Minis of all shapes and sizes will also do battle on the track in a unique race billed as 'The fastest Mini in the world' allcomers race.

Coupled with a superb race schedule, there will be a host of Mini-themed activities away from the circuit with live music, rally demonstrations, children's entertainment and trade village. More entertainment will be announced soon!

Mini clubs from across the UK and Europe are encouraged to showcase their pride and joy with the chance to take part in parade laps around the track. More than 30 car clubs attended last year.

MINI Challenge – F56

The new F56 MINI Challenge cars are the fastest MINI racing machines in the UK.

MINI Challenge – Cooper

Featuring the normally-aspirated MINI Challenge Cooper Class racing machines.

Dunlop Mini Se7en Championship

Mini Se7ens aren't to be underestimated as they're capable of achieving 0-60mph in just under seven seconds and have a top speed of around 110mph. These relatively affordable machines provide great entertainment for drivers and spectators alike.

Dunlop Mini Miglia Championship

These Minis run with modified 1293cc engines and combined with a lightweight 660kg chassis, this allows them to accelerate from 0-60mph in less than five seconds. They are also capable of speeds in excess of 120mph.

Super Mighty Minis

The Super Mighty Minis made their Brands Hatch Mini Festival debut in 2013 and they're returning for more bumper-to-bumper racing in 2016. The 1.3-litre modified Mini Coopers are aimed at drivers looking for their next step in motorsport on a budget.

Mighty Minis

Mighty Minis debuted at the Mini Festival last year and the championship gives novice racers a first step onto the racing ladder. The cars are based around road legal Minis built from 1991-1996 with a few safety and reliabilty modifications.

Fastest Mini in the World Allcomers Race

Minis of all shapes and sizes will come together at the 2016 Mini Festival for this one off spectacle to compete in the Fastest Mini in the World Allcomers race. To enter this race, please contact Joe East at joe.east@msv.com or phone 01474 875 318.
