Mini Meet North at VARAC CHGP

7th Annual Mini Meet North at Canadian Historic Grand Prix This Weekend

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Ontario (excerpt from Vintage Motorsport Newsletter) — The 7th Annual Mini Meet North is all lined up and ready to go during the Canadian Historic Grand Prix at Mosport international Raceway on June 19-21. Commemorating the Mini’s 50th anniversary, the first-ever Mini Meet North event at Mosport was held in 2009. It proved such a huge success that organizers decided to make it an annual affair. Including a full weekend of vintage racing and car shows, it’s subsequently attracted a great turnout and lots of media coverage.

Mini Meet North will be a featured event at this year’s historic festival. One goal is to achieve the largest Mini event ever in Canada. Another is to provide an opportunity for enthusiasts and their families to share and enjoy their passion for such a great car. To suit, organizers this year are introducing a “Mini only” area in the car show (which will include trophies and prizes). Better still, all car-show entrants will get to do a couple of parade laps on the historic Mosport track, followed by a panoramic photo opportunity. A road rally has additionally been planned, along with a dynamometer setup for those who wish to find out how much power their Mini really puts to ground

Organizer Tamer Metwalli says that Mini Meet North is accepting donations and prizes, and has sponsorship opportunities available to make this event as spectacular as the little car itself. For more information send an email to, or check out the “Mini Meet North” page or event on Facebook.
