Our Winners

“I was having an average day at work and in my lunchtime, I checked ukminis Instagram.
I follow ukminis on Instagram because l enjoy seeing their mini restorations and get inspired with ideas as I have a mini at my grandads which I’m currently doing up.It was then when I saw pictures of the Zeemax and thought …. what awesome car! And then I don’t know why but I decided I was going to have a few competition tickets, it’s something that I’ve not done before but thought l love that car and you’ve got to in it to win it!
After work I went home and at 8 o’clock I tuned in to the live draw. 0MG is a polite way of saying it as Samuel read out the name of the winner- I just couldn’t believe it!! I listened again, Samuel said my name. I went in to where my parents were sitting and said I think I’ve won a competition lol. They looked a bit baffled but then heard Samuel saying my name again along with the winning ticket number, he said he would ring me 10mins for a chat and sure enough he rang.
All l can say it took abit to actually sink in because I’ve never won anything. Sure enough Saturday 25th July I was picking up my UKMINIS competition prize …. a Zeemax mini and what a awesome day that turned out to be! Thank you Samuel and ukMinis …. absolutely awesome!”

When I took a punt and bought a couple of £12.99 tickets to win a mini I was under no illusion the chances of me winning were slim, im never that person who wins! Roll on 2 weeks later and here I am the proud owner of an amazing mini clubman! Best day ever.

From start to finish samuel was so brilliant, obliging on more than one occasion when I bugged him for photos and videos!

Finally a mini owner again after 17 years!

Winning Ticket No. 1185

Draw date 16th June 2020

I’ve wanted to own a mini since I was about 14. After years of looking and never really finding a decent project car, I gave up and guessed I’d just keep looking and someday find one.

I entered the previous competition, so when I saw the one for Orb I thought I’d buy two tickets and double my chances. However I didn’t have a PayPal account so I used my girlfriends. As a joke I said that if I won, she didn’t have to get me any birthday presents. She’s very happy about this fact.

Because I’m in Australia I wasn’t awake for the winner announcement. So when I woke up and checked to see who had won, I didn’t really believe what I was seeing. Once I realised it wasn’t a mistake and I had actually won, I couldn’t stop smiling. Still can’t. I’ve had the biggest grin on my face ever since. Finally got the car I’ve always dreamed of owning and in the most crazy and unexpected way.

Now I just want to get Orb shipped to Australia as soon as possible so I can start going on some road trips. 

Huge thank you to Samuel/UKminis for making this possible.

“I’ve had a couple of minis over the years and really regretted selling both of them! I started to look again recently but it was pretty clear my budget wouldn’t stretch very far and with a baby on the way I really needed to get a bigger car certainly not one of the smallest! 

I entered Ukminis competition as soon as I saw it! It might not be sensible to buy a mini with a baby on the way but winning one is a whole different story! And seeing as I’m not spending any money down the pub at the minute I bought a couple of tickets.

When Samuel pulled my ticket out I couldn’t believe it my heart was thumping through my chest and Couldn’t stop smiling (still haven’t). Huge thank you to Samuel/UKminis! Il definitely be entering the next one. 

See you at the shows when all this madness is over!”
