A hefty crowd of 25,000 coming from over forty countries gathered for the 2009 MINI United car gathering.

This third edition of the festival (this one to celebrate MINI’s 50th birthday) is a combination of racing, music and fashion.

MINI enthusiasts flocked together with over 10,000 customized cars to enjoy all the festivities at Silverstone race track in England.

Among the arrangement of MINIs were designs by David Bowie, Kate Moss and a commemorative design dedicated to the late George Harrison.

Still a young event, the success of MINI United 2009 ensures that there will be many more to come.
