Australian Hay Mini Nationals held annually on the June long weekend in Hay, where individuals and families, some being second and even third generation Mini enthusiasts, bring their vehicles from all over Australia to attend this event and Say G’day to Hay in their own special way.
The event brings to Hay a street parade of over 100 minis on a busy Saturday morning followed by one of the most spectacular show and shines around.
Then on the Sunday morning the main event kicks off starting with the Hay Mini Nationals Motorkhana, where it is expected that there will be in excess of one hundred entrants. This is followed by the Hay Heroes Challenge, an edge of your seat elimination event where drivers run off against each other on identical tests, with the fastest moving on to the next round.
Eventually after going through the quarter finals and semi finals, they move on to the nail biting grand final which can be separated by literally 100ths of seconds. This one definitely tests the nerve of both drivers and spectators alike!
