CooperWorld Magazine

CooperWorld is the monthly magazine of the Mini Cooper Register

Produced in full colour and packed with Mini Cooper information, this is essential reading for Mini enthusiasts.

Editorial - May 2023 issue The May edition of CooperWorld is another packed magazine with some interesting and varied articles and reports. One such article is the second part of Brent and Josh Bartlett’s article on the restoration of their 1275 GT and who were the winning entry for the Mini Sport/MCR Car Restoration Competition that we ran last year. Well, the restoration has progressed significantly since we had their first initial article, despite some bumps along the road as it were, as well as some positive outcomes. They have chronicled their progress in quite some detail and which I have found of particular interest. We have another Honorary Member’s Interview article from Peter Barker, and Peter’s interviewee this time is Mike Theaker whose name will already be familiar to many. Peter interviewed Mike some years ago when he was contributing to MiniWorld magazine and we re-ran his original article in CooperWorld a couple of years ago. So, Peter’s interview effectively takes Mike’s story forward from then and brings us right up to date with all that he is doing these days. For some nostalgia and history, Mike Evans continues to delve back into the MCR Archive to find more nuggets of documentation that relate back to the early history of the Mini, unravelling it further from the evidence he finds that either confirms, or indeed, contradicts what had become the gospel truth about a particular aspect or event surrounding the Mini. Then we have Richard Pengelly’s final part of his in-depth four-part series on the development of the MPi Rover Mini engine. In this final and concluding part, Richard covers the extensive testing regime that Rover, and indeed other car manufacturers, have to put their engines through to ensure that they comply fully with current emissions legislation. Just as importantly, they have to ‘prove’ their re-designs are going to work efficiently and reliably and thus, to some extent, prevent potential warranty claims being lodged by customers because of possible inherent or latent design defects immerging. I am looking forward to our annual National Mini Day at Beaulieu on 11th June as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Cooper S in all its forms. Paul Paul Sulma  - Editor CooperWorld
