From 5-18 January 2014, MINI will be lined up with eleven MINI ALL4 Racing, run by the X-raid team, at the Rally Dakar.  In 2012 and 2013 the MINI ALL4 Racing was the car to beat at the toughest marathon rally in the world. Frenchman Stéphane Peterhansel won the most recent two Dakar editions at the wheel of the MINI ALL4 Racing of the Monster Energy X-raid Team.  “Motorsport is in the DNA of MINI. Since its birth in the late 1950s, the MINI brand has been intrinsically associated with motorsport”, says Jochen Goller, Senior Vice President MINI.

It was then that John Cooper (GB) saw the basis for a promising sports car and started to modify the classic Mini to be entered in motorsports. In 1959, the Mini won the Mille Miglia national rally. In the 1960s, Mini won the Monte Carlo Rally three times, and nearly a fourth. Nowadays, the name John Cooper is still associated with the sporting legend of the MINI brand through the John Cooper Works range, which represents the sporty image of the brand with exclusive models and special performance accessories.

The 2014 Rally Dakar is another milestone in the history of MINI at the toughest endurance rally in the world. Never before have more MINI ALL4 Racing cars been lined up at the Dakar than at its 36th edition with a total of eleven cars set to compete for the victory. In 2011, the MINI ALL4 Racing made its debut at the legendary Rally Dakar.

“Entering a compact off-road vehicle in an endurance race held under the toughest possible conditions, was the challenge we wanted to master,” says Goller. Based on the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman, the MINI ALL4 Racing immediately proved it was competitive and winning the hearts of the fans from the word go.
