Last Sunday, the Mini Sport team travelled to Beaulieu for another year of the Mini Cooper Register, ‘National Mini Day’. As always, the Mini Cooper Register put on a fantastic event – another summer highlight for Mini Sport and our guests.  This year we were joined once more by Mini Legend, Paddy Hopkirk who joined us at our stand for meets & greets and signings, representing his fantastic product line ‘Paddy Hopkirk Mini’. Thanks to everyone who came to say hello to Paddy on the day and donated to his brilliant cause, IAM – the UK’s biggest independent road safety charity, for whom Paddy is the Mature Driver Ambassador, you can read about Paddy’s involvement with the IAM here.

Mini Sport sponsored Mini Rally Girls were representing the Mini Sport Mini Cup at National MinI Day 2017.

We were also joined by another big name in Mini on the day, with Mike Cooper popping in to show his appreciation on the day. Mike was there judging the Mk1 Cooper and Cooper S concours!

The Concours competition on the day managed to sustain great hype; with some excellent entries from across the country – with Cooper’s dating back to 1961.

We were really proud to have so many Mini Sport customers visiting our huge marquee with a genuine interest in our huge Mini spares and parts range – allowing us to share a bit of advice and some information on Mini Sport, including our exclusive Paddy Hopkirk line and Cooper collection.

The Mini Sport Mini Cup was well presented with Mini Sport’s very own ‘Diddy Dave’ in attendance with the Mini Sport sponsored Mini Girls Rally Team’s 1993 Rover Cooper, which certainly drew a lot of interest on the day!

Paddy was thrilled with his painting by ArtbyBex.

We also arranged for Paddy to attend an extra special presentation, where ArtbyBex presented him with one of her paintings of 33EJB.

The Mini Cooper Register, managed to once more host a great day out; we had a super day!

Thank you to everyone who came to see us at Beaulieu, a fantastic job once more by the Mini Cooper Register! With another great show behind us for 2017, we now look forward to two more Mini Sport sponsored events, the British Mini Club’s Mini Fest at Stanford Hall on September 17th and Mini Action Day at Castle Combe on September 30th – another summer day out with the Mini!
