Whine Country Coopers


"Come Barrel with Us"





Our club is for all MINI Cooper owners right here in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York.  Living in the Finger Lakes we are surrounded by gorgeous lakes, rolling hills, roads made for fun MINI driving, gorgeous views, amazing waterfalls, vineyards, wineries, shops, road side stands and great places to eat and enjoy life in the Finger Lakes.


Our home town is Dundee and is nestled between Seneca and Keuka Lake, Dundee is the home of Outlaw Speedway, great dirt track racing.  We are located about 20 minutes from Watkins Glen International Raceway, just outside of Watkins Glen.






It’s a great area...there’s lots to do... places to go... let’s rallye... let’s tour... let’s have shows... let’s represent our area at other MINI Cooper Events.


Soon the hills will be alive with the sound of WHINING SUPER CHARGERS, TURBO CHARGERS AND MINIs, oh let there be MINIs... as we barrel around "wine country" in the the Finger Lakes.
