Dakar Rally 2016 Almost Here

Steve @ Motoring Alliance republishes this from MINI@Dakar 2016:
Munich. From 02 to 16 January 2016 motorsport interest will focus once again on the deserts, mountains and sand trails of South America to view the 2016 Dakar Rally. This most adventurous of all long-distance endurance cross-country rally races promises to be a difficult race for all competitors with the addition of longer stages at high altitude and tough route navigation listed amongst unforgiving terrain.

Once again MINI and its MINI ALL4 Racing will be participating, not just one but 12 MINI ALL 4 Racing will join battle to land the prestigious Dakar rally title – a title that MINI knows all too well having won the last four years (2102-2015) in succession with the iconic MINI ALL4 Racing.

The 2015 Dakar Rally saw success once again delivered to MINI by a MINI ALL4 Racing, this time by the crew of Nasser Al-Attiyah (QAT) and his co-driver Mathieu Baumel (FR). This formidable pairing is taking on the challenge of defending their title in 2016.
