We had heard last fall that there was a possibility of John Cooper Garages opening up to the US market with the new North American MINI racing series on tap. We can now confirm that John Cooper Motorsports is indeed offering a full range of products (sans engine kits) outside the UK. For those that aren’t up on what the rest of the world was missing, John Cooper Motorsports has been the exclusive outfitter of the John Cooper Challenge since 2001. That means that they specialize in hardcore track products that are just about impossible to find anywhere else like MINI designed brake ducts and custom window netting to name a few.
Now it’s important to keep in mind that none of these parts are covered under a MINI warranty and many are meant exclusively for track use. Nonetheless, it’s definitely worth checking out:
