About Us

The purpose of the St. Louis MINI Club is the promotion, enjoyment, maintenance, and preservation of all types of MINIs/Minis and related vehicles. We also strive for the promotion and improvement of driving skills, automobile safety, and the MINI’s image. But most of all, we’re all about having fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What exactly does being in a car club mean? I’d like to join, but I’m a little scared about joining a car club.
A: Don’t be scared. While we can’t speak for other car clubs, we’re all about having fun with our cool little cars. We have many different types of events, like car detailing sessions, cruises to Missouri wine country wineries, happy hours, car shows, road rallyes and many others. You can pick and choose which events you find most enjoyable. But, we do recommend that you give every type of event a shot, you won’t be sorry!

Q: Is it just a bunch of car-dork guys?
A: Absolutely not! We have all types of members. At events you are likely to see parents, children, dogs, grandparents, married couples, single people, mothers, fathers, babies, crazy uncles… MINI Coopers attract those that are young at heart, and those in our club represent that. Everyone is welcome! But, we won’t lie to you; we do have some car-dork guys.

Q: How do sessions at a racetrack work?
A: Track sessions are available to us through Phil Wick’s Driving Academy. Phil Wick’s is a licensed performance driving school that offers many different sessions based on driving experience held at first-class facilities. Track sessions give you a chance to learn more about driving safely, learning the capabilities of your incredible Cooper, while being in a safe, controlled environment. STLMINI members receive a generous discount off of the registration fee as well!

Q: What benefits are there to being a member?
A: What, other than being surrounded by other, cool Cooper owners!? Well, members receive a t-shirt, sticker, a membership card (don’t leave home without it!), and access to the Member section of this website. In addition, they are placed on an e-mail listing of members for club member exclusive news and enjoy discounts at many Mini-related businesses and services. Check out the Sponsor page for a complete listing of discount offerings.

Q: What does being in the club cost?
A: Membership dues for the club are $30 for the first year and $25 for renewals after that. Yes, you heard right! For a mere $30 you can be a part of one very cool little car club! When you think about it, what other investment can gain you this much enjoyment and fun for just around 7 to 8 cents per day?

Q: How do I join the club?
A: We’re glad you asked! Simply click on the Membership link, fill out the convenient online form, click submit, and start preparing yourself for some serious fun! We’ll be in touch shortly after with a hearty welcome and more information about the club.
