MINI Goes With 12 Teams To Dakar
|   Tuesday, December 15, 2015
The Dakar Rally is a superlative cross country competition and remains the toughest competition of its kind in the entire world. Facing all the challenges, MINI scored with the MINI ALL4 four wins in a row (2012 to 2015) in the Dakar Rally, and now looks to the fifth success in 2016.

MINI's offensive to ensure success in the Dakar Rally 2016 has already started by announcing the names that will form 12 teams, MINI ALL4 Racing.
Ever since the original Mini was transformed, thanks to John Cooper, in the rally version Mini Cooper 997 (in 1961), the Mini name is synonymous with involvement in international rallies and of course with performance in motorsport.


Currently, MINI has continued this tradition to support global competitive success with MINI ALL4 Racing. Like the original Mini Cooper, the MINI and MINI ALL4 Racing version became emblematic combatants in motorsports through continued dominance of the competition and the world cross-country championships. The most important competition of this kind is the Dakar Rally.

Considered to be the most challenging competition the cross-country races - a marathon of endurance for cars and crews that spans over two weeks - will be addressed once again by MINI and its model tested in racing, MINI ALL4 racing.

MINI's participation to the Dakar Rally will consist of four MINI ALL4 Racing crews. These are made up of professionals, pilots and navigators with a rich track record.
The other eight MINI ALL4 Racing teams will participate in the 2016 edition of the Dakar Rally as private teams from all over the world. From Europe to South America and China, a total of 13 countries are represented in the MINI ALL4 Racing crews, and highlights the demand for the MINI ALL4 Racing, a model that has proven its reliability and performance in races - as we could see at the Rally Dakar 2015 when four of the Top 5 positions were occupied by MINI ALL4 Racing.

The MINI ALL4 Racing cars that will compete in the Dakar Rally in 2016 were refined once more. Over the 2015 MINI ALL4 Racing, crews in combination with X-raid (Germany) - MINI ALL4 Racing manufacturer - have developed machines under tests and races. The result of this operation was the successful defense of the title in the FIA Rally World Cup Cross-Country.

The 2016 Dakar Rally (January 2-16) will open the 2016 season of cross-country rallying. And this time the organizing team has produced a challenging route for man and machine, which covers an incredible land over Argentina and Bolivia.

In order to cross the mountains, valleys, river beds, deserts and more in all weather conditions you need qualities. It also requires specialized skills guidance / navigation from the copilot so that they reach the destination. In conclusion, there is a need for a car like the MINI ALL4 Racing, with proven reliability and performance to traverse difficult terrain.

Also the regime requires exceptional experience from the X-raid technicians to provide technical assistance for the MINI ALL4 Racing cars during rest periods.
