Mini Fest Premier Concours Results 2014 Round 2
As always we had an incredible turn out of concours and show and shine Minis at Mini Fest 2014. We were very impressed with the number of early Cooper and S Mini's. A very strong entry in all classes including a very unusual Siva beach buggy Mini kit car.
After much deliberation the judges decided on awarding Car Of The Day to Jeremy Robinson who was awarded £250 as well.
All class winners in the Premier concours round 2 go forward to the Premier a Final and the red carpet at Mini Fair2 at Stoneligh on October 19th.

Cast your mind back to 2009 and our Mini 50 celebrations as part of Mini Fest at Uttoxeter Racecourse, we had a magnificent Mini Bake Off. Anything Mary Berry can do Mini/MINI fans can do better.... and you certainly proved it with some amazing creations. Check out the pictures below.
Well it's come around so quick but this year is 55 years of the Mini, and in celebration The British Mini Club are another Mini Bake Off, with prizes on offer, we want you all to create your best Classic Mini or new MINI cake designs or maybe both.
Take your time to get your cake right and then bring your designs along to Mini Fest 2014 at Uttoxeter Racecourse in Staffordshire on Sunday August 31st
Display them in the best way you can in the Grandstand area of the Racecourse and help to celebrate the 55th year of the car that is constantly voted the greatest car of all time.
August 31st is the date for the British Mini Clubs MiniFest 2014, the Live Arena is again ready to attract the crowds for our Loudest Exhaust and Sound Off Competitions. Always proves popular with some fantastic Minis/MINI's taking part. Often with well over 100db's of noise.
Want to take part? Have you got the Loudest Exhaust? Have you got the loudest ICE? No need to pre book just turn up to Uttoxeter on the Sunday and be ready to blast the crowds with some noise. The competition will be announced during the afternoon then all you need to do is get your Mini / MINI to the arena ready to compete!!! You don't have to have a Mini engine to compete we welcome anything, bike engined, Honda engine in fact whatever creation you have bring it along and get loud!!
Expect some interaction with the crowd as they demand the best and the loudest to entertain them. Every year gets louder and louder. Is your exhaust so loud that house windows rattle and shake as you drive past them. Or does the vibration from your ICE cause your Mini's glass to explode? Then get yourselves down to Mini Fest and destroy the competition.
For show visitors the Live Arena is a fantastic place to take a bit of time out and enjoy some Mini fun, sit in the grandstand, chill and enjoy whats unfolding in front of you. Listen to Dave and Danny from the BMC interact with the entrants, with plenty of banter. Let them know which Mini / MINI is the loudest. Enjoy the sight of the owners vying to be the best.
Check out the fun from 2012 and lets make 2014 LOUDER!!!!!!!!!
