One of the most exciting and interactive events dedicated to the most iconic small car in Britain is set to return to the calendar in 2016, with Mini World Live promising to be even bigger and better than the show's debut this year.

The initial event was deemed a great success, attracting hundreds of beautifully restored classics, modified performance cars and the UK's leading Mini specialists and experts to Rockingham Motor Speedway.

Thousands of Mini enthusiasts made their way to the Northamptonshire venue for the first ever Mini World Live, and that number looks set to grow further, with the organisers promising even more action and more of a festival feel for the second show, backed by three major Mini-related magazine titles – MiniWorld, Mini Magazine and Modern MINI.

The second show, on July 10, 2016, will feature attractions catering for fans of both classic and modern Minis, including a huge retail village, show and shine areas, club displays and on-track action – details will be confirmed nearer to the date.

Live music and refreshments will also form a core part of the event, with camping available the evening before to ensure it benefits from a vibrant, festival feel.

Event manager Kat Chappell said: 'Mini owners are renowned for loving a good show, so it was great to see Mini World Live get such a great reception in its first year. We now have a place in the calendar and are delighted that the event has become one of the major 'go-to' events for fans of both classic and modern Minis. We can't wait to grow it further this year.'
