    Great day at MINI In the Park 2019 today at its new venue of Mallory Park. Was odd not having a drag strip but the racing on track from both classic and modern MINIs certainly made in enjoyable (thanks to Jamie and Jordan) pop pop pop. The trade stands are slowly getting more varied for the newer MINIs, and Chromiumtech Ltd. @Orranje Performance & Lohen looked awesome. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Thanks to @LewisE, @Emily Jane Brown , Connor , @Aileen Bell and Stuart for the stand today. Also Ali, Andy, @F56-dmg, @Barrie Lyndon Brooks & Sally for keeping me entertained and out of trouble πŸ˜ƒ Even the drive home was awesome with a rather smart Black/Red Clubman and GP14FUN (MINI GP2) amongst a few 😎 Definitely one for the Diary next time. πŸ˜ƒ

    Hello everyone, my names Shaun and as the tittle suggests I’m based in Surrey! Our Mini is a 2018 LCI F55 Cooper S in Melting silver with a JCW Chili pack. We treated ourselves to some extras, XL nav pack with Apple CarPlay. Tinted rear glass, black headlight/tail light bezels, black Jack mirror covers, leather cross punch heated seats, auto dimming mirrors. 7 speed sport auto box. There’s probably more but I’ve forgotten! I absolutely love this car, is a pleasure to drive and a complete rocket ship when you need it to be. Looking forward to some local meets if there are any in my area?

    No worries mate πŸ‘πŸ» EBC normally state which pads are for general road use etc. Most companies do it now, so people don’t buy say track use pads-which only operate once up to working temperature.

    I got the Pagid pads, but you could go for different ones-I had been thinking of maybe EBC pads. I did’nt need to replace the wear sensors

    Great stuff. Thanks for this. Which pads did you go for ? I trust I'd need to go to MINI and buy new wear sensors ? Thanks for your help.

    They perform well under slow town driving, you can feel them brake a bit sharper than standard. I got them from EuroCarParts when they had a 50% discount code. They are the uprated Pagid discs

    I didn't get much of a chance to wander around the trade stands. I did see the car out on track though; it looked (and sounded) great!

    I didn’t get one unfortunately. Saw you whizzing round though, seriously quick! πŸ‘πŸ»

    It all depends on what kind of life the pads have had, and how much material is left on the pad. The thinner the pad the harder it can loose the heat. I'm sure when we checked the outer pads they seemed not too bad, but again many factors could be at play here. Black stuff below is slightly better than OEM. I would deffo change the brake fluid anyway, for peace of mind, but it could do with testing to see if the boiling point has been effected, or of there is any water content because its Hygroscopic it can pick up moisture over time, usually recommended to be replaced every two years. Just depends on driving styles and all that jazz.

    I went to the one just recently with the Mini on stand with Yorkshire Minis. Was a good show and plenty of cars but my god was the organisation of the entry useless annoyingly. Stood about for hours outside of the car waiting to just get inside...
