INVITATION – XXVIII. International Mini Weekend

Dear Mini Friends!

Mini Club Hungary warmly invites you and your club’s members to the clubs oldest and most stunning Classic Mini meeting of the 2023 season, the

XXVIII. International Mini Weekend

The traditional Summer-Meeting of Mini Club Hungary will be heading back to the beautiful lake Balaton this year, for five days between the 5th and the 9th of July in 2023. The headquarters and the accommodation will be in the south banks of the lake, in Fonyód at „Napsugár” Camping & Pension (H-8640 Fonyód, Vitorlás u. 37.), and according to our intention the vast majority of the Classic Minis from Eastern-Central Europe will be with us during this sunny weekend!

What you are up to, if you decide to come?

Lot of Classic Minis (last year there were 80), comfy mobile houses, pension rooms, tent pitches, lazy beach, cold beer, lovely panorama, quite a few driven kilometers during an orientation rally with calm mood or the excitement of a rocker cover race and last but not least, nice and hot sunshine at this time of the year.
