Masters to Celebrate Magical Mini Milestone at the Silverstone Classic!
Masters are delighted to announce a 60th anniversary celebration of the extraordinary Mini, with two record-breaking races, at this summer’s Silverstone Classic (26-28 July).
Working with Goose Live Events, the Silverstone Classic organisers, Masters will be marking this magical milestone for the Mini by organising a pair of very special showdowns dedicated to FIA-specification Pre-66 Mini racers. Ensuring everyone shares in the celebrations, the unmissable Mini double-header action will star on all three days at the Classic with qualifying on Friday and spectacular 20-minute showdowns on both Saturday and Sunday.
“We are delighted that Masters has been asked to organise these Mini-only celebration races at the Silverstone Classic in July” said Ron Maydon, Founder and President of Masters Historic Racing. “Minis are very close to my own heart and, in their 60th anniversary year, it only seems right that we should be showcasing a spectacular grid of infamous FIA-spec pre-66 Minis, at such a great British historic racing festival.”
“Absolutely everybody who loves cars loves the Mini, so we are really thrilled to be celebrating this major milestone in its illustrious history with two fabulous races at the Classic, where the stars are always the cars!” enthused Nick Wigley, Silverstone Classic CEO – a long-term fanatic of the charismatic BMC baby, having learnt to drive and passed his driving test in a Mini.
In a bumper year for the mighty Mini, Masters is delighted to be doing it’s part to showcase a true British icon at the Silverstone Classic. Entry forms for the 2019 season are due to be released by the end of January.
