On Sun­day Au­gust 24 the Mini In­vaders at­tended the ninth Blen­heim Fes­ti­val of Trans­port, or­gan­ised by An­drew Green­wood. Blen­heim Palace is one of Eng­land’s largest coun­try houses, host­ing this popular meet­ing of clas­sic and ex­otic ve­hi­cles in the vast grounds of the es­tate.

The In­vaders club was de­lighted that its mem­ber Fiona Walton won the 1980- 1989 con­cours class. This was spe­cial to the club, be­cause her pink and white Mini has been used to raise funds for Against Breast Can­cer, fol­low­ing an all- clear For Fiona after can­cer treat­ment ear­lier this year.

Con­tin­u­ing with the club’s suc­cess for the day, Ray Smith also won first prize for his cabrio in the 1970- 1979 class. “All in all it was a good day for the Mini In­vaders!” said Ray.
