Mini In The Park - Santa Pod Raceway - Sunday 12th August 2018    

What's on 2018

Storming our Live Action Arena will be Moto Stunt International (MSI) one of the UK’s leading motorcycle display teams! They'll be showcasing their best stunts with wheelies and stoppies and hair-raising freestyle jumps! 


Think you can change a tyre as fast as the professionals – take on our Tyre Challenge and find out!

The challenge is simple… change 2 wheels on our Honda in the quickest time possible, all of the equipment you’ll need to complete the task will be on hand - from an airgun to loosen off the bolts to axle stands to hold the car up, everything will be in place for you to take on the challenge.

See a variety of Dragsters in action on the famous Santa Pod drag strip.

These are made to go FAST. The Mini drag racing cars have always been a big part of Mini in the Park and this year promises to be no exception, with demo runs throughout the day, and the cars on display when they’re not blasting up the strip. You won’t fail to be impressed by the power, look and sound of these machines.

Are you a star baker? Could you be a contender for the Great British Bake Off? Then enter into the ‘Great Mini Bake Off’!

Naturally, Mini in the Park wouldn’t be complete without your favourite magazine in attendance. As ever we’ll have a massive stand at the show selling the latest issue, along with Show special subscription offers, back issues, t-shirts and more! Plus, we’ll be showing off some of the best feature cars from the last year from Mini Magazine, Mini World and the new Performance Mini Magazine.

We are excited to announce that 2018 brings a year of change for the Modern Mini Magazine. This year at Mini In The Park we will be unveiling the rebranded magazine - Performance Mini! To support the launch we are also giving you the chance to feature.

For this year's Win A Mini Competition we’re giving you the chance to drive away in a yellow 1989 Mini Mayfair!

This manual Mini has all original it's features including the grey grill,bumpers,wheel trims and decals and is ready to use this is an amazing prize for any mini fan.

For your chance to win this car look out for the Win a Mini tent at the following shows:

The Pride of Ownership display at MITP is accessible to all Mini owners as it's more laid back than show 'n' shine and concours.

It's simply about displaying your Mini in a way that shows how proud you are of it. Make sure that it is clean and well presented and include any accessories such as colour-coded cushions or tools etc, service record, Heritage certificate and albums of photos documenting the Mini's history, rebuild or restoration.

The Club Mini Push is back for 2018 and is always a great crowd pleaser! Watch clubs battle it out as they huff and they puff to push a Mini around the course. Only one club can be crowned the winner and with their reputation on the line the competition is always hotly contested.

If your part of a club, why not enter a team of up to 5 people to take on our Club Mini Push Challenge. Can you get around the course in the fastest time and be crowned the 2018 champions?

Why not make a weekend out of Mini In The Park and camp over? Camping is available on Saturday 11th August 2018. There will be dedicated family camping areas, public camping areas and club camping areas for you to choose from.
