Some of you might have noticed this new event launched online earlier this week and we already have had support from this very forum, of which I am grateful. Special thanks to the admin on the Facebook page for inviting us to share on the forum.

Be sure to like the Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/minimagicevents/ to keep up-to-date and if anyone in the club would like to come along you will be welcome.

A bit about me - I'm a Mini owner myself and have competed in hillclimbs, my dad (you guessed it) raced a Mini. You might see where the passion has come from to get this up and running...and I'm delighted to say it has already inspired some people to get projects finished in time!

MINI MAGIC SET TO BE A KEY DATE

Mini fans will gather in Ireland for the inaugural Mini Magic on July 15 - an event designed to enjoy the car we feel in love with in the '50s/60s and remains a favourite to this day.

WillPromotion event director, William Neill, said: "Mini Magic will be more than a gathering. It will be time to enjoy Minis - and for those who want to - get them on track. Rally, road and race will gather to share the day of celebration together.

"We are Mini fans and owners ourselves so, after a lot of planning, to bring this together is something special. We will have our own Mini there so join us for the day."

Bring your Mini and be a part of it either on show or on track.

Early entries are encouraged and all age of Minis - and owners - will be welcome. Advance entry please for track entries.

Show and Mini park entries can enter on the day, however feel free to let us know you are coming.

The Midas, Marcos, Riley and Wolsey are all welcome too.

Hello Woody - details are on the event website at minimagicevents.com as included in the press release.

Mini parking and show entry - 10 euro and that includes up to three passengers (as arranged with the venue). That's 2.50 euro each if you bring Mini mates onboard! There is a track viewing area.

Track entry - 95 euro. There will be a place for trailer parking. One passenger at a time on the track and 18+ only. Advance booking only for the track with entry form on the website. Maximum is 65 places for the track. Full regulations - minimagicevents.com/regs Entries already coming in...

Yes, it is for Minis. New and classic are welcome as are Mini inspired cars such as the Midas, Marcos, Wolsey etc. Anyone who thinks they fit the theme can get in touch too.

Track time - 3 laps per run on what is Europe's largest karting centre. Track is 1.5km per lap. And we will do as many runs as possible. In terms of value a rally sprint at the same venue is 100 euro and only does two laps each run.

Prizes are to be announced but again, yes. However it is very much a fun day for Minis and those who feel they don't have a 'show and shine' example are still welcome.

Mini Clubs are welcome to have a stand providing we have numbers early. As mentioned on the website clubs or individual owners can leave a message if they would like to come along on the day.

Traders will be confirmed in time but I have been in touch and like most of us will be engaged as interest continues to grow.

Numbers - we already have had entries in the first 24 hours and the event isn't to July. I hope to update the forum as this continues.

Finish will be by 5PM and gates will open EARLY for Mini owners and track entries.

I hope that helps. There is also a FAQ page on the website you might find useful.

Thanks for the questions and lots more to be added on the forum on the build up.

Another interesting entry just in as I type from a Mini Clubman owner with a Honda 2-litre engine and he is heading for the track.

Coming from a motoring journalist and photographer background we have our first piece of coverage lined up thanks to Car Sport who are already planning their 2018 Yearbook (published at the end of the year).

There is now a news snippet section at the bottom of the link below to keep people engaged who aren't on social media -

http://minimagicevents.com/

Latest post on the website: Just 24 hours in and the response - for a project we are putting our heart into - has been fantastic to see with cars already committed! Keep sharing and put July 15 in your diary. More details and requirements for track entries - MiniMagicEvents.com

Thanks to everyone on the forum for taking a look and Happy New Year to you all.

Hi there!

I compete in the Northern Ireland hillclimbs (although doubt I'll have time for that this season).

The day job is a reporter and photographer for many of the magazines and newspapers you might have read - mainly motor sport related.

My father competed in sprints, hills and had a go at rallycross while being involved in organising some clubman rally events.

My car - Austin Mini 1983, 1380cc and after some time on the track it might see the road soon. Many do it the other way around!

If anyone has any questions feel free to drop a message via the website and I will be happy to help.

One thing is for sure my heart is in it and, after some interesting news almost complete this evening, I'm looking forward to being able to add it to our next update.
