A ‘non-cours’, where prizes were dished out to cars unashamedly wear­ing a few blem­ishes meant this new event never ran the risk of tak­ing it­self too se­ri­ously.

Own­ers of clas­sic Minis, Met­ros and BMWera Minis com­peted for plau­dits in­clud­ing Best Beige Car, Worst In­te­rior and Big­gest Area of Rust, and an au­to­mo­tive gymkhama in the grounds of the Bri­tish Mo­tor Mu­seum meant there was plenty of op­por­tu­nity for tyre­screech­ing ac­tion too.

Clubs played a big part on the day, with a 50th an­niver­sary dis­play by the Heinz 57 Reg­is­ter and a show­case of the Mini Cooper 35LE’s 20th birth­day be­ing given top billing.

Co-or­gan­iser Tanya Field says: ‘The show was well sup­ported by the clubs and the Cooper 35s and Heinz 57s put on very im­pres­sive dis­plays. We can con­fi­dently say that given the sup­port for Na­tional Metro & Mini Show this year, it will be back next year, so be there or be square!’
