G1.20 Minis at Dunsfold - The TopGear Test Track - 3rd June 2017 - 13th March 2017, 11:43 AM

Roll up, roll up, here is your opportunity to drive your Mini or MINI on the TopGear Test Track!

Winding the clock back 10 years or so, I used to organise a MINI event at the TopGear Test Track, but Dunsfold became increasingly difficult to deal with, and it fizzled out, the last event was 2009 and we had 250+ cars there!

Well, for 2017 it is back! Saturday the 3rd June 2017, at Dunsfold Park, home of the Top Gear Test Track.

This is a charity event, and is limited to 100 cars only. Entry is by prior registration only, and the cost is 60 per car, with no charge for additional drivers or passengers.

Format for the day:
  • Arrival from 9am
  • Drivers briefing at 9.45
  • Track action starts at 10am
  • Cars will be lead out in in groups of 10 behind a safety car (essential as the TopGear track is a figure of eight)
  • 12:00-12:30 break for lunch (marshalls taken out on track)
  • 12:30 track action resumes
  • 15:30 last track session
  • 16:00 - Event closes

The sessions will be lead by experienced drivers, and Slower/faster groups will be available on the day to suit all Minis and abilities.

We of course welcome classic Minis too.

Tuition will be available on the day, just jump in with one of our safety car drivers and they will show you all the correct lines and braking points.

The charity element
This is a charity event, and all money raised on the day will go to Variety, The Children's Charity.

I myself am taking part in The Italian Job later this year, Variety is their current nominated charity. There will be an Italian Job stand at the event, with merchandise available.

The 60 charge per car is to cover the cost of hiring the track, which this year is costing us 4800 for the day, with obviously a bit extra to go to charity.

There will be tea and coffee facilities in the paddock area, as well as a gourmet catering van supplying fantastic bacon rolls and burgers. Lookup 'The Flamin Tucker' on Facebook! They are normally based on the A325 at Bordon.

There will also be toilet facilities provided in the paddock area.

A professional photographer will be on site also capturing you on track.

As the event is limited on numbers, entry is by prior registration only. Please visit the website below, where you will find a link to register. You will then receive an email with 2-3 days with payment information. Tickets will be posted out in good time before the event.

We hope you'll join us, and see you on the 3rd June.
