SILVERSTONE WILL BE THIS YEAR'S SETTING FOR THE LARGEST MINI FAN EVENT EVER, CELEBRATING THE BRAND'S 50TH BIRTHDAY.

After Misano/Italy and Zandvoort/Netherlands, MINI is celebrating the third MINI United Festival in the UK - the country where it all started. MINI lovers, most of whom will be travelling in their own cars from countries all over the world, can look forward to the unique mixture of an exciting show programme, motorsport action and a music festival.

In addition to music show acts, stunt shows, go-karting, lounge areas and DJs, the MINI community will also be able to experience a huge exhibition which will take MINI fans through the whole history of the brand. The MINI CHALLENGE will also be part of the festival again, moving into its third and fourth heat in front of an international audience. In addition, the Mini Seven Racing Club will increase the excitement on the course by organising a race with up to 40 classic Mini race cars. There will also be the possibility for you to drive a few laps on the Silverstone track, either alone or with a MINI CHALLENGE driver.

There will be lots of bars, kiosks and restaurants providing a plentiful supply of food and drink. And for those looking for children's entertainments, the Kids' Area will once again provide plenty of activities, from bobby-car racing and climbing to body-painting.

This season's Grand Prix is expected to see record breaking crowds assemble in Northamptonshire to welcome home the reigning world champion, and the youngest in the sport's history, Britain's Lewis Hamilton. The entire race weekend looks certain to buzz with an enormous party spirit as we celebrate a new British hero and cheer him on to each passing lap.

The best teams and drivers in single-seater motor racing have a new set of regulations to contend with in 2009, so we can expect a slightly different order of merit to that which we've become used to of late. With these new regulations designed to increase the racing spectacle even higher from the past two classic seasons, which have thrown up some real surprises and incredible races, expect fireworks on this most challenging of tracks.

But of course there's not only the Formula One, as the GP2 support category gives fans a chance to see the next generation of stars before they jump to the big time. Add to that the Porsche SuperCup, a host of other support events and Silverstone's famous Grand Prix Party and there's little surprise that this is the hottest ticket of the year

Don't miss out book your tickets now.
