The minis 6oth birthday may well have gone, but there is still much to celebrate in 2020.

The central arena will focus on ordinary minis from the comparatively standard to the rather more radical. The mini scene has always been one of variety and can boast to have more accessories and modifications available from the 60s onward, than probably any other car. The Mini Cooper Register is a club for all mini enthusiasts and this display will demonstrate the sheer range of minis that are owned by members.

Expect to see standard 850s as well as with thoroughly modified examples including commercials, estates and Hornets/Elfs as well as some of the rather better equipped minis of the 21st century.

Around the edge of the arena will be displays of each register within the MCR, with two of each car from MK1 Coopers to Modern Minis. Registrars and owners will be in attendance to answer any questions.


Ex- works and competition cars
ex-works_beaulieu-mcr-300x199The ever popular ex-works and competition cars will be in their usual spot adjacent to the arena. Every year this display attracts significant attention and I am sure this year will be no different with an impressive range of cars expected.

Beyond the ex works and special tuning display will be a special gathering of RSP Coopers celebrating their 30th anniversary and the revival of the Cooper brand.

Giving their view of the events of the past decades of competition of the mini, will be many of the MCR’s honorary members whose experiences span the years of the heyday of the mini.

As ever the fields will be a sea of minis of all types and colours.


The concours, which is respected by many competitors as the pinnacle of mini shows, was oversubscribed last year and although entry on the day is available, early pre booking is advised.

It is advisable to enter early to ensure that you receive a place. Concours entry in advance is only £6 (for members, £7 for non members) plus the price of an entry ticket. Concours entry on the day (£8.00) is permitted providing there is sufficient room available in the chosen class.
