World record attempt for Mini’s 60th birthday

Classic & Sports Car – World record attempt for Mini's 60th birthday

A suitably fun idea has been revealed as part of next year’s Mini's 60th-anniversary celebrations, in the form of a Mini mosaic – and you can be part of it.

Yes, you read that right. On 3 August at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire, event organiser Brian Sankey hopes to assemble 600 Minis spelling ‘Mini 60’, to establish a new Guinness world record.

Of course, that’s going to need a lot of owners coming along and taking part. Fancy it? Read on.

Classic & Sports Car – World record attempt for Mini's 60th birthday

Here’s the list of eligible models:

  • Classic Mini (produced between 1959 and 2000)
  • Mini Clubman
  • Mini Clubman Estate
  • Mini Countryman
  • Mini Marcos
  • Mini Moke
  • Mini Pick Up
  • Mini Scamp
  • Mini Van
  • Mini Wild Goose
  • Riley Elf
  • Wolseley Hornet

And there’s more. Not only will you get to join in on a world record attempt, potentially scribbling your name on the pages of motoring history, but the event takes place the day before the National Metro & Mini Show, also at the British Motor Museum.

All of which means that you can look forward to a full weekend marking the Mini’s six decades on the road since ‘621 AOK’ rolled off the production line in 1959.
