In total just over 800 Minis were on display at Brooklands, I was one of them in a brand new Mini Copper SD 5 door kindly lent to me from Broad Oak Mini in Canterbury. The days weather wasn't a good sign and with this in mind I chose to get as much as I could early on, just in case the weather deteriorated even more (which it did!). As ever the Mini owners know how to modify there vehicles and this makes for some interesting car photos, even in the wet weather. You could name almost any interpretation of paint job and it would been on one of the 800 cars present, New York cabs, Tiggers, Mini Mini's and the list goes on. This year there were even more of the new Mini's present, the manufacturer has been keen for people to modify these upon order with various decals and roof and colour combos to make them individual to other peoples cars.

The weather did start to get heavier with rain after lunch and made it difficult for more creative car photography on the day, I had a nice mix of people shots, wide scenic a capes of the Brooklands site adorned with Mini's plus a few quirky detail images of the cars on show. Kit wise I had the 24-70mm and 15mm fisheye lens on the two full frame cameras, making for a mixture of varied car photographs at Brooklands Museum. Look forward to next years Brooklands Mini day and hopefully some sunshine!
