The annual Brands Hatch Mini Festival returns in August 2023 for another full day of pocket-sized motoring action from the UK’s favourite small car! The iconic vehicle will be celebrated both on and off the track.
On the circuit itself, there will be door-to-door racing action from classic Mini Miglias, Dunlop Mini Se7ens, Mighty Minis, Mini Se7en S Class and the popular “Fastest Mini in the World” race. At the end of the day, once the racing is done, hundreds of modern and classic Minis will take to the track for a special Mini parade.
Around the venue there will be big displays of all the best-loved Minis, both old and new, surrounding the legendary Indy circuit, plus an extensive trade area.
