Do I need to be a member of a car club?
To enter the Parade or Show and Shine events you do not need to be a member of any club, however if you happen to win a category which you have entered, the points allocated to that winning entrant will not count towards any team awards associated with the Hay Mini Nationals.
To be able to enter the motorkhana you need to be a member of a CAMS affiliated car club, however spectators are more than welcome!

Do I need a Motorsport Australia Competition licence?
In order to compete you will need to hold a current CAMS licence.
You only need a Level 2 Non-Speed licence which is available from the Motorsport Australia Website.
What does my car need?
If you plan to enter the Show and Shine, then your vehicle needs to be registered and driven in the parade to be eligible to win awards.
If you’re entering the motorkhana your vehicle doesn’t need anything special. Essentially as long as it’s road registerable then you should be right, however you are advised to read the Supp regs and the Motorsport Australia manual of motorsport (motorkhana cars group 4H) for detailed requirements.
How do I get there?
There’s no set travel plans to get to Hay, your local mini club may have a convoy of people going to Hay. Traveling in a convoy is a great safe way to travel and if you each have a UHF radio the time passes very quickly. Most people travel to Hay on the Friday and come home on the Monday.
There’s still a few people who drive their Mini’s to Hay, however these days most people trailer their Mini / Moke
Do I need a Mini to come to Hay?
All Mini enthusiasts and anyone just looking for a fabulous weekend with awesome people are totally welcome!
