About Mighty Mini Club of Sri Lanka
A group of Mini enthusiasts formed the Mighty Mini Club of Sri Lanka on 7th July 1995; so as to enable Mini lovers to meet socially and make the most of their Minis. The name for the Club was suggested by Ameen Deane who continues to be a life-member of the Club, and has been an ardent Mini owner and racing driver. 33 Mini owners gathered for the first meeting of the Club and a team of Office Bearers were chosen.
