There is something about the MINI that inspires a sense of creativity and individuality. Other cars do not come close; there are endless graphic options and customisations for the MINI, and some of these are created by independent individuals, companies, and BMW itself. In fact, a MINI event, MINI United, was hosted last weekend. The event was held at Silverstone race track over three days, and events included racing around the track, watching races, live music, karting, famous MINIs (including those appearing in films), a history-of-the-MINI line-up, club stands, and the unveiling of George Harrison's (my favourite Beatle) original and replica new MINI.
One of the highlights for me was walking around the car park and the line-up of MINIs (including the club stands) and admiring each and every MINI. The MINIs came from all over Europe, and some of the MINIs came as far as Russia. Each had its own unique design and individuality. A work of art. By the end of the weekend, I had also purchased something from BMW for my MINI: Union Jack indicator panels!
