This event will take place inside of the largest and longest-running multiday British Car event, The Portland ABFM, on Labor Day Weekend, September 4-6, 2020. Holding MMW at the Portland ABFM is not a new concept. Back in 1988, Mini Meet West had been held at the Portland All British Field Meet. The organizers of the Portland ABFM welcome you to Portland International Raceway to celebrate the Mini. Included in this weekend of festivities will be SOVREN's Columbia River Classic. Check out this LINK of images from last year's event. 

 

In honor of the 1988 Mini Meet, we will be rolling back the cost of Mini Meet West Registration to only $50!

  • Friday night Welcome Reception 
  • Saturday Show and Shine with awards
  • Saturday & Sunday Giant Slalom with awards
  • Saturday Optional Banquet with Guest Speaker John Twist of University Motors Fame, Grand Rapids, Michigan - FYI- Last year's Banquet sold out!
  • Sunday Rallye with awards
The complete event schedule can be found at this LINK

Please make reservations with the Host Hotel by August 3, 2020. Rates will include wireless internet throughout the hotels, parking is included in the group rates and we will be offering shuttle service to PIR during the event, please check with the front desk for the scheduled times. We have two optional rates at the Courtyard, one with breakfast at $159 per night, plus tax and one without at $149 per night, plus tax. The Fairfield Inn & Suites rate of $139 per night, plus tax includes breakfast.

Many thanks to Mike and the MMW 2020 planning committee for their hard work.  Tough decision to make but the prudent choice.  Hope to see everyone in Portland for the ABFM in early September this year.

Mini Meet West 2020 Cancelled for June 2020

The MMW2020 Organizing Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the MMW2020 event in Victoria BC this year.  We do not make this decision lightly, but we realize that protecting the health of our Mini friends and their families, as well as our sponsors and partners is a higher priority than holding the meet.

We have worked with all our venues and the other Mini clubs with the intent of moving the event to the same time next year in beautiful Victoria, BC. Stay tuned for future updates.


Why are we doing this?

Given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the restrictions in place for travel and border crossings, the lack of medical travel insurance, and the increasing number of infected people we feel the risk to the attendees could be high from both a medical and a financial perspective.  There is no end date that we can be assured that the pandemic and all the restrictions are going to be over. 


What happens next?

The MMW2020 team will be closing the registration page, and issuing refunds to the attendees. The fees paid will be returned as paid in Canadian currency, through PayPal in the next few weeks.  (Please note that with currency fluctuations of the Canadian Dollar, the US$ refund amount may vary slightly from when you registered).

If you prefer to commit to MMW2021, then let us know ( ) and we will hold your registration for MMW2021 and use your MMW2020 payment towards next year’s meet. 

We will continue to be in communication with you via Facebook and email on MMW2021.  Thank you all for your support for Mini Meet West. Keep safe and well, and we hope to see you at MMW2021.

The block booking for the host hotel is cancelled and all reservations within the block will be cancelled at the same time, attendees do not need to call in. If you had made extended reservations or other reservations for accommodation or ferry reservations, you will have to cancel these yourself.

Support our Sponsors

Thank you to all our Sponsors for the support of MMW2020. Please continue to support our Sponsors as you keep your car running or complete your rebuild for next year’s MMW2021. You will find them listed on our website and Facebook pages.

My sole personal aim in preparing for MMW is to get the 1961 Austin Se7en Countryman (Registered in B.C. as a Modified Collector Vehicle in Restoration) to Victoria on June 29th to debut at Mini Meet West.

After a regrettably long delay, the shell went to RWM Maynard & Co. for the last of the bodywork & paint...with some assembly to follow there.  Sadly, the shop where it was in the mid-Fraser Valley got into trouble and I had the recover it and various parts.

Snowing here today with 6 or more days of rain to follow.  When I looked at the weather yesterday a.m. - clearing, drying, breezy -  I put the move into gear.  Safely completed and in the RWM shop by 7 last night.



Newton Commercial emailed yesterday, DHL has the full interior kit moving too.  And so much more, the built power unit, wheels, tires, glass, rubber, wiring harness, headlining & frames and many other bits have been ready on the shelves since 2016.

So, it is pitter patter got to get atter!

Who else is going to bring a 'new' Classic Mini to Victoria?
