A day where people come to compete, admire, sell, trade, exhibit or just like us for the sheer love of the mini

Jack loved the racers “who made the smoke” and was far too busy telling us about it to pose for a picture

Then he had such a thrill when Uncle Miff and Steve (Rachel’s dad) queued to go out and let Jack try on a helmet

Jack watched their circuits carefully, Uncle Miff took on new stature as a race driver and we found a car for him to try out

More fun. Just as Jack was getting in to his chat up success, his mum shouted “Do you need a poo”. All over then

A slow bimble around, see another old lady. Bear like the Esprit in the car park – how on earth would we get in and if we did how would we get out???

Time to say farewell to Steve, Chris and Rachel, but Uncle Miff holds the special place for driving fast, Oh to have heroes
