For many years we ran our own Events: Annual Meet, Tour and the legendary Turkey Run (New Year week in Scotland). We have had a Stand at the Mini Owners Club show Stanford Hall every year since 1991, rain or shine!
In the mid 00's the Mini scene declined and we ceased running our own Events, but still attend selected shows (see Events Calendar). The Register went online at this time and ceased fees and production of paper magazine. The Yahoo chat group and the Facebook page with over 400 likes and counting taking its place. If you have an 1100 Special please get in touch!!
About the Register...
Formed in 1990 to cover the much overlooked 1100 Special (20th Aniversary edition) of the 'Classic' Mini, we later expanded to cover Mini 25, 30, 35 and 40 models (also Belgian Special and New Zealand Aniversary).
We attended the IMM at Silverstone in 1994 and at that time had 300+ members with the above models (those were the days!). The Register was also present at the Press Launch of the Mini 35 at Gaydon, a couple of us getting to have lunch with John Cooper, Paddy Hopkirk, Alex Moulton and Stuart Turner and other Mini personalities!
Not to mention driving the First Mini and Paddy Hopkirk's Monte winner round the track!
1993-1995 were our busiest years attending shows all over the country in UK. It seemed like every other weekend was spent under canvas.
The Register provided information and members' cars for Mini World Aniversary Editions Guide, article on the 1100 Special in 2008 and the Mini Magazine 40th aniversary issue on significant minis in 1999 (the Silver Special shown was one of our Stand mainstays).
