Event: Brooklands Mini Days
Written By: Harry B
We start the day at Sainsburys, When got there mike was there already then me and Darren went to McDonald's to get some food, Then went back to the car park and waited for Chris H and Toby to arrive We set off at about 7 o'clock Long drive on the motorway but funny, Me and Darren were left to To lead the convoy. It was so cold in the mini as heating did not work at all as found out the next day there was no water in Radiator. When we arrived there the weather was bad And some of the roads were flooded.when we got to brooklands was nice to see minis everywhere and the club stand we got was in a great location right near the main place. Got out of the cars the see that only mini with ice still on roof was Darren's as we had no heating, but then we all got some pics next to the cars and in our CMC hoodies was a laugh.
We started by looking at all the parts for sale as It was quiet I was trying to found a nice mini for sale but no luck, Toby got new needles for his car. We all went inside for hot drink as freezing outside, all laughing and joking about, Toby went and booked himself in for the hill climb, everyone spilt up in to groups looking around all the Museums, me and Darren was trying to find biggest engine we could find so can fit in to a mini. Later we found everyone and went to. Watch hill climb which was fun some minis flying up and some just about making it, Toby did well in his.after everyone split up again me and Darren pointing and laughing at all the BMW minis as they not as good as classic ones. All met up again and left brooklands we stop at mini spares on way back, then headed home mike in his 998cc was making the rest of everyone look slow, Toby's in meant to be one of the fastest so me and Darren didn't know why he was going slow but he pulled over to petrol and told us that he didn't bring to stuff he needed to add to petrol that's why he was going so slow. When back in colchester in stop at McDonalds for more food with Toby after Went home. Was a really day out just Shame about weather as last year was a really nice day.
