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.
