Let’s Hear It for the Mighty Mini

Whether you’ve got one, used to own an old classic version or are out to find yourself another – make sure you’re in Lincoln when scores of motoring’s most iconic cars arrive!

Date: 14th Apr '15

Mini-mania is about to hit the city again and Lincoln is expecting to welcome more than 200 mini-drivers and their much-loved motors on Sunday, April 19.

It’s an opportunity to check out everything from cherished classic favourites, dating back to the Sixties, to today’s shiny BMW versions when they all park up in front of the city’s Brayford Pool for everyone from mini club members to shoppers and visitors to admire

As usual, Trent Valley Mini Owners’ Club is in the driving seat and organising this exciting day in collaboration with Lincoln BIG (Business Improvement Group).

Trent Valley Mini Owners Club spokesman Mike James said: “We are looking forward to another great day and an event which typically attracts mini fans of all ages from miles around.

“The event will run from 10am to 4pm and people will be able to check out their favourite cars, marvel at how many have been modified and chat to their owners. Who knows, they may well be inspired to buy one of their own!,” said Mike.

There may also be a Mini accessories stand to browse on the day.

The crowdpuller,  which promises to be filled with colour and nostalgia, is sure to bring back memories for people who were among the first Mini owners (in 1959 and the early Sixties), when this popular marque was also a hot favourite with many pop stars and models.

People will be able to see models including the Mini Cooper S, Cooper, Clubman, Clubman 1275GT and other highly modified and individually-tuned examples, as well as a wide range of today’s BMW models.

Lincoln BIG Events and Promotions Manager Michael Armstrong said: “The Lincoln BIG Mini Day is among our most popular events.  This is not really surprising, because 5.4 million of the classic-style minis were produced over a period of 41 years – and that was before the BMW versions came onto the scene.

“We want to remind everyone who intends to park-up their Mini at this event, that they must do so well before 10am.

“Like Mike, we also have our fingers firmly crossed for brilliant weather so that, in addition to the Minis, people can enjoy visiting the Brayford Waterfront restaurants and even do a spot of shopping in the city centre.”
