SHOWCASE MINI AT CLUB EXPO
Mark Wynn Smith’s former Meguiar’s showcase Mini 40 flew the flag for Minis at the recent Club Expo event held at the British Motor Museum on March 19. The idea behind the day was to allow for club representatives to come to the museum and attend talks, workshops and seminars to learn more about how to successfully run a club.
One of the seminars on the day was presented by serial concours winner and judge Tracey Lippett, which encouraged people to share ideas and questions regarding concours. She also took the opportunity to promote the idea of clubs sharing information via a new group on Facebook – search for ‘Car Show and Concours Infoshare’. It is hoped that club organisers will use the group for sharing documents and ideas, as well picking each others’ brains.
Joining Mark’s 40 was Jamie Field’s Metro Vanden Plas, creating a fitting pairing ahead of the inaugural National Metro and Mini Show that takes place at the museum on June 4-5. A lot of interest is already surrounding the event, which will be supported by Smiffy’s Bits, Meguiar’s, Picture My Gifts and MiniScenes. There’s a great incentive for entrants too, as the Best in Show winner will be invited to display their car next to the first ever Mini, 621 AOK, in the museum. See ‘The National Metro and Mini Show’ on Facebook for details.
