Mini Festival expands to Snetterton for 2017

Thursday, February 16 2017

MSV's popular Mini Festival will expand to three events for 2017, with an all-new weekend-long fixture at Snetterton on 12-14 May, in addition to the established meetings at Brands Hatch on 8-9 July and Oulton Park on Saturday 19 August.

The Mini Festivals are a celebration of Britain's most popular small car, with racing, displays, and demonstrations starring classic Issigonis Minis, modern BMW MINIS, and a plethora of unique machines based on those distinctive blueprints. This May marks the first time that this successful event concept will head to the Norfolk circuit.

Racing is to be headlined at all three events by the MINI CHALLENGE, with three grids, including a class for the high performance JCW machines - the fastest UK-based saloon racers outside the British Touring Car Championship.

Plus, there will be plenty of racing for older Minis, including races for pre-'66 cars, Super Mighty Minis, Mighty Minis, Mini Miglias, and Mini Se7ens.

Highlight attractions at the new Snetterton event will include aftermarket trade stalls, a vast array of display cars, a live music stage, and an outdoor evening movie.

Off-track activities at all three events will include displays and parades organised by Mini clubs, an extensive trade village, and a wealth of other Mini-themed attractions.

There will be opportunities to get the little ones behind the wheel too with YoungDrive!, MSV's renowned driving school for 11-17-year-olds in a MINI ONE.

Tickets for all three Mini Festivals are available in advance for £19 with free entry for under-13s.
