The Mini Cooper register in the UK, of which we are affiliated as the Australian region, was founded in 1986. The club is not just for owners but for enthusiasts as well, all wanting to share in the Cooper’s rich history, from race and rally successes to being the car of choice for many of the ’60s coolest trendsetters.
The MCR keeps the sporting spirit of John Cooper’s brainchild alive more than half a century after it first made motoring history. The Rover Cooper of the 1990’s and BMW’s new MINI for the 21st century have further extended the interest in the increasingly rare and valuable original Coopers.
The Mini Cooper register is proud to have had John Cooper as its Honorary President until his death in 2000. His son, Michael ia now Honorary President.
The Register also has Honorary Members, several well known personalities who were associated with the Mini Cooper during its halcyon days in the 1960’s. These include Rauno Aaltonen, John Rhodes, Paddy Hopkirk, Paul Easter, Stuart Turner, Lady Watson (Christabel Carlisle), Barry “Whizzo” Williams and Mike Wood.
