60th Anniversary Mini Race - September 6 – 8, 2019


Mini Owners, start your engines! The iconic Mini turns sixty years young in 2019, and what better way to celebrate this historic milestone than to assemble a large grid of Mini race cars on the track and a massive contingent of show cars on the concourse field! A very special tribute event for racers and enthusiasts of the Mini will be held at Portland International Raceway, Portland, Oregon September 6th to 8th, 2019.

Racing will be sanctioned by the Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts (SOVREN), a non-profit racing organization dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and competition of pre-war, vintage and historic racing automobiles since 1985. Classic race-prepared Minis and Mini-powered variants with a log book issued by a recognized Vintage Racing organization, SCCA, or FIA are invited to participate for trophies in one of our four official classes. PIR is an excellent Mini track, with an extensive history going back to the very beginnings of closed course competition in the Pacific Northwest. Racers will enjoy a single event exemption from SOVREN car eligibility requirements for this event. Drivers must hold a valid VMC, SCCA, or FIA competition license and medical to participate. Car classifications and tech inspection requirements will be announced soon.

Mini/MINI Enthusiasts are invited to attend and cheer on their favorite race Mini, as well as participate in Americas largest British Car Event, The Portland All British Field Meet, which is saluting Sixty Years of Mini and all things British Car! The weekend kicks off with the Friday Welcome Party, followed by the Saturday car show, guided walking tours, BBQ, Giant Slalom competition, People's Choice balloting, a live music performance, Arts, Crafts & Photo Contest, Scavenger Hunt for children, Best in Show designation, and a Land Rover Adventure Ride. Sunday's activities include a Rallye, swap meet and more fun on the PIR track in the Giant Slalom.

Please make plans now to attend the 60th Anniversary Mini Race at PIR, and celebrate the Mini's 60th Birthday in grand style!
