gala-miniMini Sport have had a fantastic weekend at the Paddy Hopkirk 50th Anniversary Gala and would like to thank everyone who made it possible and also to everyone who attended!

As official supporters of the unique, one-off event, Mini Sport were out in force and took many of our own products with us, along with items from the Paddy Hopkirk Range and the brand new 50th Anniversary Collection. We really enjoyed the event and were amazed at what was a really good turnout for the Cavalcade that rolled through Belfast.


A huge amount of Minis and classic rally cars amassed upon Stormont Castle to begin the Cavalcade and it made quite a sight. Headed by Paddy Hopkirk in his 33EJB replica, the huge convoy took over the streets of Belfast and headed toward Titanic, Belfast.

There was plenty of other things going on too with an Autotest, Signing Sessions, an Auction and of course the Banquet in the Titanic, Belfast to finish the night.


100% of all proceeds from the whole event went to two really good causes of which Paddy is associated with – Skidz Motor Education and the Integrated Education Fund.

We haven’t got a final figure for you as yet but we are sure that whatever the amount, it will be gratefully received and put to great use.
