Cars of England at Oakbourne June 2 2012

Shine up your MINI or your Mini, and let’s get ready to show off our PhillyMINI pride. It’s that time again; Cars & Motorcycles of England is returning to Oakbourne Mansion!

For those who are planning to attend, you may wish to enter your car in the show. Keep in mind, our cars will not be judged by the show officials. Rather, we will do this amongst ourselves or by designating a judge.

This is always a fun, relaxing gathering you will not want to miss. Whether you’re a British car enthusiasts or just PhillyMINI enthusiast, this is a day of camaraderie on Oakbourne Mansion’s beautiful grounds.

Bring a chair, a picnic lunch and some sunscreen (it’s been a long winter). Wear comfortable shoes, as you’ll do plenty of walking as we wander at our leisure amongst these amazing British cars.

More Details & RSVP

Cooper Cup

Please join the three time guardians of the PhillyMINI Cooper Cup, “Systematic Chaos”, for the 22nd running of the Cooper Cup – our semi-annual competition!

Bring your GPS, smart phone or anything else that may help you find who’s chasing the Road Runner and what a Gelding is!

This rally is NOT a turn by turn directions rally. We give you clues of road names, directions based on road signs (202 North may be go north), turn at the end of the road, etc… and along the way you’ll be counting, a lot, and it matters this time. So if/when you backtrack be sure to remove them and add on others… And this time you get to choose which way you want to go, directions at drivers meeting…

About The Cooper Cup

The Cooper Cup is intended to be a challenge. You define your own success. Whether it’s finishing in the top 10, finishing dead last, or still having a sense of humor when you’re done, being successful and having a good time are entirely up to you. Choose your navigator / driver wisely.

As with all Cooper Cup events, speed may get you to the finish, but not necessarily with the desired results. Don’t be embarrassed if you get lost, especially if it’s your first time. The directions we provide may require some thought and effort to follow.

At check in, you will receive a DNF (Did Not Finish) envelope containing the address of the end point. If you choose to give up and open this envelope, you are disqualified – but at least you can get to the end point for the party. That’s where the Cooper Cup will be presented in all of its glory!

The winner of the Cooper Cup is destined to plan the next Cooper Cup (November 22, 2015). If the winner is unable (due to proximity, life, MINI changes, or so forth), the second place team will take the reins.
