2014 will mark the 55th anniversary of the Mini, and to celebrate this icon of the automotive world, a very special tribute race weekend will be held at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
In the spirit of the event, only classic race-prepared Minis and Mini-powered variants will be accepted. Cars with a log book issued by a recognized vintage racing organization or SCCA will be accepted, providing the SVRA safety requirements are met (visit the "Event Info" page for more details). Additionally, cars must retain an 'A'-series engine and be well presented.
It's about a year away as I write this and the entry list is already pretty darn huge...
I can't wait for this event. The COMO ( Central Ohio Mini Owners ) club will be a gold sponsor. We will be helping out the racers by giving away certificates and visa gift card to help will all of the expenses. We will have a pop up with a table setup near the racers so come and say high. We are also looking at a special hand built trophy.
I'm a bit surprised at the few replies to this event post. I became a member of the Tar Heels Mini club, in NC, after our '07 mcs was bought. Living very near "the snake" in E. TN has made for miles of smiles. Our 2011mcs spice orange has the body color all over the bottom. My son & I will be there & will meet my brother there also. I often yearn for the '64 mcs I bought before going on active duty, since mom sold it, while I was gone. I hope to say Hi to FIREBRO17 & check in w/COMO's.
