If you own a Mini – Cooper or non-Cooper – original or modern – or just want to know more about the marque, the Mini Cooper Register is the club for you. Friendly, active and with a strong UK and international membership, we keep the sporting spirit of John Cooper’s brainchild alive over 60 years since it first made motoring history.
The Mini Cooper Register was founded in 1986, not just for owners but 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 introduction of the Rover Cooper in the 1990s and BMW’s new MINI for the 21st century have further extended our membership and created fresh interest in the increasingly rare and valuable original Coopers.
That interest is reflected in the club’s wide range of marque registers. There are registers catering for every age and type of car to carry a Cooper badge whilst the 1275GT and the Mini Super each has its own dedicated register. In total 17 registers.
We don’t just cater for Mini Coopers, owners of non-Cooper models are just as welcome.
As well as these marque registers we have a thriving network of regional groups and the club’s Facebook pages help members keep in touch, share their interests and solve technical issues.
A year-round calendar of events offers lots of opportunities to use or show your car and to meet other members. The highlight of the club’s calendar is the National Mini Day, held annually at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in Hampshire, an event that attracts thousands of Cooper fans and their cars.
Among the guests who regularly attend our Beaulieu show are honorary club members who helped create and build the Cooper legend: rally and racing drivers and the engineers who helped them achieve those giant-killing victories.
