Such a stunning Classic Mini was available to won for just £1 at Mini Fair 2015. The Mini City ws in very original condition with only one owner from new and only 30,000 miles on the clock as well. A fantastic Mini to win for anyone.

A big crowd gathered for the presentation and raffle draw. The time had come and the winning raffle ticket was drawn out of the box by young Amy. Danny was ready with his watch, one minute to claim the prize!!!, Dave Hollis, after dragging out the tension even further, started to read out the numbers on a green ticket 5......6.......3 A shout was heard and a gentleman came forward to claim his prize.

Kevin Woodhull had the winning ticket who very kindly passed the keys onto his son Tom Woodhull, who in turn said the Mini was for his own young son Riley, Watch the fun and the drama unfold below via our You Tube video.

Mini Fair 2015 - Results

A very sucessfull Mini Fair 2015 again saw a top quality Pride Of Ownership, and superb display's by Mini Clubs using 'London' as the theme. I was sent out by our Head Judge to try and decide a winning Mini from the Pride Of Ownership and the Simply Redz display. At one point I had narrowed it down to 10 choices! Was it the Paul Smith Mini with the Mini trailer that included a sink and a hob! Maybe the Mini-Busa or Mollie the MINI, Luke Billings stunning creation or the Moke in the Simply Redz. Mind you the incredible wide arched Clubman Estate with an MX5 underneath wasclose as well. However Pride Of Ownership is not just about the car we all love but the owner as well. We just thought Malcolm Huxley with his superb yellow Rally Mini. Malcolm is so enthusiastic about his Mini and of course it is a Corgi model as well. The details on the Mini is just amazing. What came first the model or the Mini?

The Pride Of Ownership was again sponsored by Branson Automotive who presented all the class winners with an Auto Glym pack and a cheque for £100 from the BMC. 

As always the various Mini Clubs put on an wonderful display using  London as the theme. Where they get the ideas from is incredible. With the Abbey Road crossing and the London Eye making an appearnce, plus various people dressed as Big Ben, a Post Box, Telephone Box, Beefeaters and more the whole thing was taken in very good spirit and great fun. If you ever wondered how the Mini would look in the London Underground this was the place to be. Well done to all who entered. The winners are listed below.

Innovate With Minivation at Mini Fair

One of the most innovative Mini companies in years will have a big stand at Mini Fair on January 25th 2015 at Bingley Hall near Stafford. Well known for their unique designs Minivation have been telling us what they have been upto since our event at Stoneleigh last year. Ben Edmonds the creative director at Minivation tells us more....
"It's been a busy few months at Minivation HQ. We've been squirrelling away working hard to bring our vertical hinge concept to the MK1 and also the Elf/Hornet which arguably have the biggest need. 
Progress has been slower than we would have liked but we are pleased to bring Paul Goddard's Elfrod fitted with our prototype hinges to Bingley. This is the first time that an Elf has had so much engine bay access without removing the bonnet."
"We have been testing our MK1 hinges too and will shortly be stocking them on our website.
We can't help ourselves, since Stoneleigh last year we've made a few minor updates to our existing hinges which we have in stock all ready for Bingley 
We've also developed some alternative gas strut mounting brackets to enable the use of our Clubman hinges with engine conversions or for when there is insufficient space behind the triangular stiffening bracket."
 Ben continues "We've turned our attention to the interior of the mini as we now working on a Retractable Cup Holder. Cup holders are inherently large, bulky and ugly and not in use, just get in the way. Our concept will mount under the dash rail and when not in use, is stowed neatly out of sight. We should have a working prototype at Bingley to show the functionality and gather interest.
Lastly we've expanded our range of security products. We now have two new Trackers and a Solar trickle charger for use when your mini is stored in a remote location but you still want it protected with a tracker. The new trackers feature a low cost Live Tracking function which allows you to see your mini in real time on you smart phone, tablet or computer. We've put together a table to explain the differences between the three different trackers."
"As ever all our products are available via our website and we are very active on Facebook and twitter.
With plenty of products in the pipeline Minivation are showing no signs of slowing down. Watch this space as we tackle more of the little niggling issues associated with our great love, the Classic Mini!"
