Classic Mini Club Based In North East England

After missing a few years of hosting a mini show, Tynemouth Mini Club decided to restart their yearly event.  Since we are out of practice and starting at a new venue, we kept it to club members only this year.  Therefore, giving us a chance to have some cars on show, visit a new venue and find out more about it. 

We had a great turn out of cars, with 19 in attendance this is the first time all these cars have been together since 2019 when all covid restrictions were out in place.  We have been attending local shows but not everyone has been able to take part in these events.  So good to finally get together and catch up with people after so long.

We have to say a big thank you to The Stephenson Railway Museum for having us and allowing our show to go ahead.  Its an amazing place with a lot of local history and the tour round the workshops gives a great insight into the amount of work that goes on in the background to keep the engines running. Our club was also given the chance to ride in a carriage pulled by the steam engine.

To keep tradition, we asked someone who is not a member to judge the club cars and pick their favourite to be awarded the club trophy.  We asked Jean from the tearoom to have the honour of making the selection this year; she chose Marks 1997 sports pack cooper, and he was presented with the trophy.

We look forward to planning our event here next year and making it bigger and better we will see you all again in 2023.
