Mini Festival and Love:Mini magazine will team up at Brands Hatch on Sunday 9 July for show and shine and concours awards across a variety of classes. This will add another element to a busy weekend-long show at the Kent circuit which will include Mini racing and off-track fun aplenty.
Love:Mini magazine will judge two separate contests on the day, with the show and shine competition tailored towards cars that represent the spirit of Mini, whilst the most immaculate cars will be inspected in a special concours area.
All Minis parked inside the venue will automatically be entered for the show and shine, and it doesn’t matter if your car is a little rough around the edges as it’s all about character – everybody is in with a chance!
The show and shine element of the show will include the following awards, so you’ll all be competing against cars from a similar period, with a chance to win:
Best Classic Mini
Best New Mini
Love:Mini Editor’s Choice
The judges will wander amongst the displays to pick winners, and owners do not need to be with their vehicles for the judging. Winning vehicles will be presented with a rosette on the windscreen with a note offering details of the presentation time and location. Winning vehicles will be invited to take to lead the track parade on Sunday afternoon at the end of the event.
In addition to the venue-wide show and shine, there will be a concours area that will be judged in a thorough and correct manner. All those wishing to participate will have to pre-register at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an open category which means that cars of all ages and specifications can be pitted against each other.
In addition to judging the car competitions, Love:Mini will have an official presence at the event with a trade stand.
