Stanford Hall Mini Show – Sunday 17th September 2017
Although we had no club stand booked this year Jean and Nick attended. Organisation of this long standing event this year switched from The National Mini Club to The British Mini Club.
Once we had found a suitable parking space (with other classic minis, not hidden among the ever growing ranks of BMW minis) the by now obligatory bacon rolls were sorted before touring the large trade area and concourse arena which was much expanded this year. There seemed to be more club stands this year and these had been moved to a more central location on the show field, previously clubs had been located along the field behind the house away from the main show arena and last time the club had a stand at this event it meant a bit of a leg stretch to get to the mainshow arena (if there is enough support next year we’ll take the club stand).
Also in attendance was a replica of the Italian Job Coach complete with minis inside that was being taken on a charity rally in Turin a few days after the show.
