Mini Action Day 2021 brought with it an abundance of thrills both on and off the track when it descended on Castle Combe Circuit on Saturday, 14 August.

Supported by Mini parts specialist, Mini Sport, the country’s most-loved track-based Mini event came back with a bang following 2020’s instalment being cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Celebrating both classic and modern Minis, the event featured Mini-only track slots and parades throughout the day, as well as a thriving trade village area, countless stunning club car displays and much more.

2021 marks the 60th anniversary of the original Mini Cooper, as well as the 20th anniversary of the first ‘New’ Mini to be created back in 2001 – both milestones that were celebrated with special displays at the event.



As always, plenty of awards were dished out by judges on the day, with the task of choosing the top spots proving as difficult as ever due to the quality of metal on hand across the paddocks.
