The BMC Mini Tour is back in 2023!

The BMC Mini Tour is an annual tour that ran from 2002 to 2017. It was organised primarily by Neil & Lynette Crawford. After a well deserved break, they're back at it for all new fun adventures!

A navigational tour, the BMC Mini Tour kicks off on a Saturday and continues all the way through to Sunday afternoon/evening. The tours take place on some of the best roads and locations the alpine region has to offer, and each year's route varies, remaining a closely guarded secret until the event's start.


A different theme is chosen for each year's event and participants are encouraged to dress themselves (and their minis!) to match the theme over the entire weekend - or for the more shy, just for Saturday Night's dinner event.


The Details:

When: Originally scheduled to run April 1st & 2nd, 2023 but now postponed - final dates TBA.

Where: Departing from Bairnsdale at the Water Tower; Fire Brigade Training Track. Driver’s briefing at 10.00 am on Saturday.

Who can Enter: To participate in this event you must be a financial member of the Victorian Mini Club Inc. or other Motorsport Australia affiliated club. Limited places are available due to accommodation arrangements and preference will be given to the Classic Mini; other entries/vehicles may be considered if vacancies exist.

This Year's Theme: Dress as you did for the first day of school (Kinder/Prep/Primary/Secondary)! Your choice - all weekend or Saturday night only!
