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.

Although it’s not quite the end of the events season just yet, with a number of shows and other events still to be held before the events season finally comes to a close. When looking back on 2021 we certainly had as good a year as we could have hoped for in terms of the number of car shows and events that were staged, particularly when you compare it to that of 2020, when many shows and events were either postponed or cancelled. In this month’s issue of CooperWorld we have three Members’ articles. The first of these articles is from Peter Barratt who has been chronicling the restoration of his Mk1 Cooper in a series of articles. In part seven of Peter’s updates he covers the refurbishment of the radiator and petrol tank, dealing with the poor state of the chrome on his car’s rear quarter windows, as well as the rebuild of the car’s original hydrolastic suspension. Then we have the first part of a two part story from one of our long-standing club members, retired engineer Peter Laidler, who recounts his search for, and eventual acquisition of, one of the ‘last of the line’ Mini Coopers way back in 2000. It’s an interesting and eye opening account of Peter’s experiences in trying to buy one of these cars before there were no longer any left to buy new. The third Members’ article is part two of Michael Evans’s article entitled From Mini to MINI. In part two Michael details the development stages of the Mini and how it was that the Mini came off the drawing board into production in a very short space of time. Finally, we have two articles on two differing events, the first one being from Robert Clayson who attended the Brands Hatch Mini Festival, and having read his report on the event, I really wished I had gone along to watch first hand a cornucopia of Mini racing. As always, Robert had his trusty camera with him to take some great shots of the Minis in action. The second event was the Stone Classic Car Group’s 10th Anniversary Tour which Pete Cresswell, the region’s contact for the MCR’s Mid Staffs Region, has been organising since its inception. From reading Pete’s report about the tour it certainly seemed to have been a great way to celebrate this long-standing event. Paul Sulma Editor CooperWorld
