Anyone going to this ?


Sunday, April 22nd


The Visitor Centre at T Building at MINI Plant Oxford will be open between 10.00am and 4.00pm for Drive It Day and to celebrate the 50 years of British Leyland. There is ample parking outside for everyone. 

This is for everyone, classic car owners and local people. Past and present Cowley workers are particularly welcome. 

Classic vehicles of all descriptions are welcome, not just Cowley related ones. 

This is free for all to attend. Classic car owners are very welcome to drop by as part of Drive It Day and have a cuppa. There will be free refreshments for all, and there will be a donation box for Macmillan Cancer Support, MINI Plant Oxford's charity, for those who would like to make a small donation. As we are celebrating 50 years of British Leyland, and 70 years of the Morris Minor, we will also be having cake! 

We will be joined for part of the day by esteemed Rover author, James Taylor. James has just written book which is a car-by-car look at British Leyland, 1968-1986 and is due out in March 2018. James will be very happy to sign any of his books which you have and would like to bring along. 

I can be contacted at [email protected] or on 07929 868284, should you have any questions. 

Hope to see you there!

Price: Free
