It's only a few more days before the first Mk1 Performance / Maximum Mini Action Day will take place at Blyton Park in Lincolnshire.
Our friends at Mk1 Performance Conversions have made a (provisional) itinerary with all the necessary information at hand. Click here to see it.
On the Saturday evening prior to the event, there will be a dinner party and some special guests will be there to talk Minis (and Mini derivatives!). From 8:30-0n the next day cars will arrive and there will be a small trader's area plus a small car boot area. As you can see on the picture below, the Maximum Mini display will be right next to the start line and pit lane - so we are garantueed to be in the middle of all the action!
Now for the cars on display there's still some uncertainties. At first I was were thrilled to have a quantity of Unipower GTs at hand (4, no less), but from what it seems now it's very much the question if they will make it! Fortunately a string of Cox GTM owners has stepped forwards at the same time, and there will be 4 of these rare beasts now, plus the freshly restored GTM Coupe of Richard Hawcroft, so that will be a nice slice of GTM history. Richard has also been so kind to exclaim several prices for cars attending the show. One of them is for the Best Mini Variant - apart from a trophy that's a 30 GBP Mini Spares voucher and replica Monte Carlo garage wall plaque. Now, if my copies of Maximum Mini 2 arrive on time (still unsure, can you believe it?) I will add a brand new book to that, too.
If you have any questions feel free to drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a bell on my mobile phone: +31-620-816654. See you in Lincolnshire!
