Mini fans, classic car owners, and those in the market came to Brayford Pool in Lincoln this weekend as scores of some of motoring’s most iconic cars arrived in the city.

More than 200 mini drivers and their much-loved motors took part in the Big Mini Day on April 19.

Visitors checked out everything from cherished classic favourites, dating back to the Sixties, to today’s shiny BMW versions – all parked up along Brayford Pool.

As usual, Trent Valley Mini Owners’ Club was in the driving seat and organising this exciting day in collaboration with Lincoln BIG (Business Improvement Group).

People were able to see models including the Mini Cooper S, Cooper, Clubman, Clubman 1275GT and other highly modified and individually-tuned examples, as well as a wide range of today’s BMW models.

Lincoln BIG Events and Promotions Manager Michael Armstrong said: “The Lincoln BIG Mini Day is among our most popular events. This is not really surprising, because 5.4 million of the classic-style minis were produced over a period of 41 years – and that was before the BMW versions came onto the scene.”
