London To Brighton Mini Run 2012
The annual London to Brighton Mini Run organised by the London & Surrey Mini Owners Club. It is one of the biggest events along Madeira Drive with parked minis stretching all the way from the Sealife Centre to Blackrock. This year there were around 2,100 minis to took part.
Official entrant to the event parked along Madeira Drive and they gets the 'I was there' badge, but anyone can, of course, drive down to Brighton and park in one of the city's car parks, then join the fun since the Drive was open to pedestrians.
The Mini Run was open to all and every conceivable type of mini, and it is one of the attractions of the day to see just how many variants and customised minis there are. In addition, the Mini Run there was an enormous market. Madeira Drive was full of market stalls selling everything and anything you could want for your mini.
There was even a small course where souped-up minis can strut their stuff - one at a time of course.
The run started from Crystal Palace Park in London at 8-30 am The official route is down the A23, though many took the M23. Photos click on the link below.www.brightonrun.co.uk/index.php
