SHOW­CASE MINI AT CLUB EXPO

Mini Magazine - - Mini Scene -

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.
