This past weekend I entered my first non-MINI-only car show – Wheels Across The Pond 2016. I have attended the show as a spectator in the past, but never had an entry. The show draws about 250 registrants showing off their cars in over 30 different classes. I entered Clark in the Modern MINI class and the competition was fierce. My good friend, Jackie Hardy, presented her MINI Clubvan, Preston (a Wallace and Gromit Anti Pesto van-themed MINI) – always a crowd favorite. Michelle and Howie Rosenberg showed off their Green Lantern themed MINI, Kilowog, among other great MINIs. All in all, there were quite a few MINIs that came to impress so Clark needed to put on his cape and become “SuperMINI”. After the voting finished and the tallies counted, Jackie Hardy took 3rd place with Preston, Michael Rose took 2nd with his silver R56 Cooper S and Clark took 1st place in the Modern MINI class!!!!
LAP Motorsports and MINI USA put on a great hospitality paddock for us MINIacs that attended the race complete with a driver meet and greet before the race and a full lunch during the race.
