The London to Brighton was the first major show of what will be a very special and very busy year, the Mini’s 50th Anniversary.

The London to Brighton Mini Run is arguably the largest one make car show in the world. 2100 official Mini tickets, and the event is further attended by around 400-500 additional Minis who use the many public car parks in and around Brighton.

Improving on what is already the biggest show in the show calendar is a tricky business, this event is not just a static show, it is a lots of people and a lot of cars having fun on the Saturday in Crystal Palace, making a historic run at an ungodly hour, and only then do we take over the whole seafront for a great show.

Mini Sport arrived first on Madeira Drive in Brighton at 5am on Sunday morning in order to set up the 16m long stand full of hundreds of parts and accessories. Despite the early morning torential downpour which created havoc with the stock and tent, the day was hugely successful and we wish to thank all the Mini owners and customers who made the day such a great event!

See you all there next year!
