MiniForce is a recently formed club with the motto of: “The club where the classic and BMW Mini stand wing-to-wing in support of our Armed Forces.”
Launched in January 2013 by Mark and Liz Elvin, they are getting ready for an active season of events both locally and nationally – not forgetting their Mini-adventure to Limburg miniclub in August.
Over the past year Mark and Liz Elvin’s highly visible yellow and orange classic Minivan has been seen darting along the West Norfolk roads never failing to turn heads. During fundraising events at, and around, RAF Marham, they got talking to people who suggested starting a Mini club at the camp as there were a few classic Mini owners who didn’t belong to any clubs but would like to get involved in the Mini scene. So they did just that and launched MiniForce.
With such a strong affiliation to the RAF base it was only natural the club would choose a charity to promote and donate to related to the armed forces. SSAFA Forces Help is a national charity with local branches who are there for those who currently serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families too.
The club welcomes new members who agree to adorn a rather trendy windscreen sunstrip which reads: MiniForce – ‘Salute Our Troops’. Whether you drive a classic or BMW Mini, you’re welcome. Infact, all classic cars and future Mini owners are also welcome – and it’s free to join.
Starting their event season with a drive down to Brooklands Mini Day, they quickly follow it up with Wheels Day, Lincoln Big Day, Suffolk Run and H2H.
A new forum has recently been launched and this can be found at www.miniforce.boards.net with a website to follow very soon at: www.roads-uk.com.
