Mini owners enjoy weekend based at Fakenham

This year's Norfolk Mini Owners Club event at Fakenham racecourse over the bank holiday weekend coincided with the Minis 60th Anniversary year.

The Norfolk Mini Owners Club have attended many events around the country to help celebrate this birthday year.

Both Classic Mini and the newer Modern MINI drove up from as far as High Wycombe to take part.

Saturday saw the Minis drive from the racecourse to the Dereham Windmill before heading to Cromer and chips.

Saturday night was a quiz held in the Prince of Wales grandstand back at the racecourse.

Sunday saw the Minis group up again for a convoy to Stalham.

From here the club took to more back roads and headed back to the racecourse for some games including push a mini! Not that easy in the unusually hot bank holiday weather we experienced.

Trophies from the show were awarded to Kevin Rayner with the Best Classic Mini, Craig Scott with the Best Modern Mini and Car of the show. Jane Nutley for Furthest Travelled and Brian Hodson for Spirit of the Show (he refused to give up with car issues which resulted in a trip home on a low loader after the event).

Funds raised from the weekend are being added to an earlier event the club held over the Easter weekend and a donation is to be made to the local charity Nelsons Journey.
