The Italian Job Mile of Minis attempt



On Sunday March 14th 2021

Welcome to the first Italian Job event of 2021, The Mile of Minis. The start line will be at MINI Plant Oxford and we are looking forward to a glorious day of driving fun. The aim of the Mile (other than the joy of driving our Minis/MINIs) is to fundraise in support of Buttle UK who are helping families in crisis up and down the UK who have been so massively impacted by the Covid 19 pandemic.

Each Team is requested to do their very best to raise as much money as possible and at least £40. All money raised will be donated to BUTTLE UK, who will use it to support children and families that need it most.

The day begins with arriving at MINI Plant Oxford and parking in the designated area of the car park between 8.30am and 10am. After a welcome breakfast, photos and a few speeches of welcome, all teams will be flagged off around 10.30am for the start of their driving adventure out into the wilds of rural Oxfordshire.

Following the tulip design road book, teams will follow the route across miles of beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, through picturesque chocolate box villages, rolling hills and plenty of places for a pit stop, kodak moment or comfort break. Oxfordshire is well known for its beautifully manicured parks and gardens and we will pass many on our route such as Buscot 18th century estate – Gardens or Kingston Bagpuize House. These and others will feature prominently in our photographic treasure hunt on the day. Further details –including optional BBQ cost – will be available in January .

COST per TEAM (a team is one car and two people) £26,- to include Breakfast, navigational road book, souvenir ID badge & lanyard, baseball cap, car sticker and fundraising pack.

Cost for additional person in the car £10.

TO RESERVE your place please email advising the names of the driver, co-driver and any other passengers, and your Mini/MINI registration number.

PAYMENT by bank transfer to The Italian Job account at Lloyds.

Account No: 01921155  – Sort Code: 30-98-74 (please remember to include your name)

We look forward to welcoming you to our first event of 2021!
