With the loss of its flagship National Mini Day still fresh in the mind, Mini Cooper Register (MCR) has been boosted by the news that Hagerty Insurance is to renew its sponsorship deal from 1 July.
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.
MCR’s other main sponsor Mini Sport also renewed its support in June, meaning that the club can manage the fallout from losing its main event at Beaulieu and plan for 2021 from a sound financial base.
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 again and am sure that this will prove a continuing success for all parties” said MCR chairman Robert Young.
“We are thrilled to be working with the Mini Cooper Register again 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.
