More than 60 guests from two Mini dealerships in Northampton and Oxford tested the latest Countryman and Paceman models at Millbrook’s High Speed Circuit on 19 October.

Guests had the opportunity to test the agility and road holding of a coupe or roadster on the Alpine Hill route and an off-road drive on Millbrook’s cross country tracks.

Mark Penn, group customer relations manager at Wollaston Mini in Northampton and North Oxford Mini in Oxford, said: "I have been very impressed by the ‘ride and drive’ event. Millbrook really is the ideal location for a MINI 'adventure' and we have thoroughly enjoyed taking customers out for a drive in our latest models."

Meena Chander, senior account manager at Millbrook Venues, added: "I am thrilled to have worked with Mark and the team on this event. We have many years’ experience working with vehicle dealerships on performance driving days, but this is the first time we have had the pleasure of hosting Mini dealerships in Northampton and Oxford.

"Millbrook Venues is an exciting place to hold any corporate event, and with four purpose-built venues and the unique advantage of our tracks, we are able to accommodate a variety of activity days, meetings, conferences and exhibitions on almost any scale. For local businesses this means they have access to unique facilities – all within a short drive."
