MCR’s National Mini Day at Beaulieu

The 9th June 2019 is the date for your diaries this year for the MCR’s National Mini Day at Beaulieu. The time of year when the New Forest fills with the sound and sight of minis.
Tickets

Display
This year sees the 60th anniversary of the mini. The MCR will be celebrating this milestone with a display of 60 minis, including pickups, vans and estates from an early 1959 saloon right up to a 2019 modern mini model. The cars will be displayed in a way to show the progression of 60 years of technology and design.

    

Ex- works and competition cars
ex-works_beaulieu-mcr-300x199As usual there will be a good line up of the ever popular Ex-works and competition cars presented by Robert Young. Robert is confident that many ‘new to the scene’ cars will be on display.

Giving their view of the events of the past decades of competition of the mini, will be many of the MCR’s honorary members whose experiences span the years of the heyday of the mini.

Concours

Once again the concours will share space in the arena. Last year was again a good year with many classes full on the day, meaning our judges once again had a hard time finding the best, but eventually the winners of the prestigious trophies were found. Our classes were restructured a few years ago and now offer more of a chance to win whether you own a Cooper or a mini.

It is advisable to enter early to ensure that you receive a place. Concours entry in advance is only £5 plus the price of an entry ticket. Entry on the day (£7.50) is permitted providing there is sufficient room available in the chosen class.
The concours form can be downloaded from here. Please either post the completed form to the address on it or alternatively by email to beaulieu@minicooper.org

Trade
Our show at Beaulieu has long been associated with finding those hard to source items or new parts to enhance your car. This year will be no exception. As in previous years we will have a dedicated trunk trading area where non traders will be selling spare parts accumulated over the years (Contact 02380 560073 evenings only). The main trade area will be populated in equal measure with traders selling hard to find or desirable parts and those selling modern replacements and accessories.

Trade stands must be booked through this web site, just click this link to go to the site plan and click the stall(s) you would like to book.

Club stands
Club and regional stands can be booked, although tickets for club members should be bought in advance via the ticket line as below. MCR regions can also book by the same method. The booking form is here.
