Sunday morning, couldn’t help but think the
alarm should have gone off earlier. Checked the time &
it was well past time to meet everyone are the British Queen!
An hour later after a frenzied sandwich making session,
an F1 style fuel take & a blast up the motor way, we
pull up at the gates of the Brooklands Motor Museum, randomly
shouting MINI & thrusting our waving hands against the
Mean while a convoy of minis enjoy a pleasant cruse along
A & B roads bending the rules & ruling the bends.
I missed out but sounds like Dave’s route was well received
by all. An hour later they joined a rather empty club stand
situated facing a limited mini only car park.
Hats off the Gary for keeping his hat on! Taking a risk
he bought along his roof/side, back chopped, beach buggy
mini! As ever, the well prepared Daz erected his gazebo
to protect Gary’s interior from the unexpected spring weather.
The show was better than expected with a good turn out of
fancy/tarted up show mini’s and a reasonable turn out by
the trades, think we all got a bargain some where along
the lines. I saved £90 on tyres!!
The motor museum itself was interesting, (as far as we saw,
didn’t get a chance to look round much), but concord was
a respectable sight…and a good chance for people to climb
on-board one of Engineering’s greatest achievements.
Sadly the weather closed in & we all departed for home.
Gary, John/Billy, Josie & myself opted for the motorway
blast home, sensibly everyone else was keen to take Dave
more pleasurable route home.
Everyone one got home well, Daz risked life and hell by
getting the Mingie Cooper past the national speed limit,
(I think his speedo’s rusted, LOL) and Gary toped up with
some water ballast. Mind you he got the most attention on
the motorway!! One Asian filled Audi made three photo passes!
All in all, a great day out and a good start
to the Mini shows this year!
