The HRCR are having their open day at Gaydon on the 12th Jan 2019.
The theme is 60 Years of the Mini and 10 years of the Mini Cup. We have got every car that has won the Mini cup during the last 10 years on display with the crews, with the exception of last years winner Ray Cunningham, as he could not make the show.
I have also arranged for Bill Price and 10 of the ex BMC mechanics to attend. Also Stewart Turner and Paddy Hopkirk will be there. We intend to interview them all about rallying the Mini in its heyday with BMC, and some of the modifications the mechanics made on the rally cars. This will be about 11.00 am.

Everyone is welcome and entry is free but if you want to visit the museum there is an additional charge.

I have been unable to find confirmation on the HRCR site (or anywhere else) of the Bill Price etc. interview (forum?). Is this still happening? If so will there be an opportunity for the audience to put questions?

Problem is, it only mentions "guest interviews". That's not a clear opportunity to ask,, for example, BP etc. about a final resting place for their records where they will be accessible to all, not just one organisation. Several on here are aware of the importance of that.
I can't justify travelling just to hear a few "reminicences" (which, from experience, will not always be accurate because all too often all great names can get mixed up when they have so many great events to recall - and it often needs someone to jog their memory on specific events).

Is there a way of attending without paying for museum entry ?

The entry to the museum has a reduced entry fee of £10 for people who want to visit while at the open day, but if you just want to visit the open day this is free just follow the signs.

The Ex BMC team members will not be taking questions from the public but will be available to talk on a one to one basis after the group chat.

The current mini sport championship competitors will also be available for anyone who may be interested in competing in the future.

Paul Loverage the eligibility scrutineer will also be available to help with an preparation questions.
