Owners and fans invited to inaugural Oulton Mini Festival

Wednesday, February 19 2014

Mini fans will have the chance to celebrate the very little, very British icon this year at the inaugural Oulton Park Mini Festival on Saturday 12 July. Advance tickets are now on sale, starting at £18.

The racing timetable will feature only Minis, and the Power Maxed MINI Challenge, Mini Se7ens and Mini Miglias will thrill fans at both events. Each championship is unique, and provides some of the closest racing in UK motorsport, as showcased at the first two Mini Festivals.

The Scottish Mini Cooper Cup will double the dose of BMW MINIs as they make their annual trip south of the border, joining the Mini celebrations for the first time. The historic Minis of the Kent Cams Cup will ensure there will be over 10 races dedicated to the UK's favourite little car.

Away from the racetrack there will be plenty to keep the whole family entertained. YoungDrive! taster sessions will give 11-17 year-olds the chance to get behind the wheel of a MINI alongside a DSA-trained instructor.

The owners' displays will bring together special and unique Minis and MINIs from all over the country and the Trade Village will give owners and enthusiasts the chance to find parts and memorabilia. More plans will be announced in the coming months.

Mini owners can take advantage of special discounted entry to both festivals and Mini clubs are invited to display their unique collections in the beautiful parkland setting of the circuit.

David Willey, MSV's Motorsport Events Manager said: "After two successful festivals at Brands Hatch, we are delighted to announce an expansion of our Mini Festivals with a brand new event in the north west this July. We are looking forward to welcoming Mini owners from across the country and beyond, including the dedicated fans of the Brands Hatch festival. Regardless of whether enthusiasts drive the original or the modern version of this enduring classic, there will be lots to enjoy at this stunning circuit on 12 July!"

Tickets for the Oulton Park Mini Festival on 12 July are available for £18, with free admission for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
