Mini Cooper Register (MCR) has secured a new sponsor in Hagerty Insurance, who join MiniSport in supporting the club.
Run by avid classic car owners and enthusiasts, Hagerty is dedicated to the development of specialist insurance and do not offer any other insurance products such as household or travel cover. Their aim is to offer clients the best premium rates for a comprehensive range of classic car insurance products available in the UK.
Mini Cooper Register was set up in 1986 with the twin objectives of preserving the name of the Mini Cooper and stimulating interest in the car and its history. The Register has grown over the years and now has over 2,000 members worldwide, with Mike Cooper as Honorary President. Its remit covers both Classic Minis and modern MINIs.
As well as organizing events and services to members, the club publishes the acclaimed CooperWorld magazine monthly.
“We are delighted to have Hagerty Insurance as joint sponsors with MiniSport from 1 July and hope that this proves a successful arrangement for both parties” said MCR chairman Robert Young.
“We are thrilled to be working with the Mini Cooper Register as their members embody everything Hagerty stands for in preserving, driving and enjoying their cars” said Hagerty UK marketing director Marcus Atkinson.
“We look forward to talking and meeting as many members as possible during our partnership with the MCR” he added.
Earlier this year, Hagerty celebrated the 50th anniversary of the film The Italian Job with a chase sequence through the grounds of Stowe School shown at the annual speech day at which former pupil Michael Deeley, the producer of the original film, was guest of honour.
