Minis on a roll at Brent Knoll

Minis of all ages were welcome at a classic car show dedicated to this iconic model held in Brent Knoll, Somerset, this month.
The event was organised by motoring enthusiast and Mini Cooper owner, Scott Thomas, who also runs a local garage, so knows a thing or two about cars.
The show was not just a get together for local Mini lovers, but was also packed with awards which were given out to cars, based on a number of different category definitions.
The show was as inclusive as possible, with awards available for both the best Mini made before 1970 and the best New Mini, which for some, might seem like sacrilege but in reality, is something that will please the majority of people.
Following the show, there was a major Mini cruise which followed seaside routes through Burnham-on-Sea and then on to Weston-super-Mare, before heading back to the starting point, via Cheddar.
Hopefully the show's success will result in it returning to Brent Knoll in future years, although it might have to switch venues from Sandlers Garden World, if it is to accommodate increased numbers and continue to grow in line with its apparent popularity.
