Munich. Preparations are running at full speed as the X-raid Team’s MINI ALL4 Racing cars limber up for the defence of their Dakar Rally crown, beginning on 5 January 2013. And the X-raid Team has also invested its trust in the MINI Countryman and Original MINI Accessories for the rally world’s most exacting challenge. For example, the service vehicles which will accompany the team over the full rally distance of more than 8,000 kilometres (just under 5,000 miles) through Peru, Argentina and Chile will be equipped with the off-road design package. These eye-catching retrofit components from the Original MINI Accessories range ensure that the MINI Countryman cars preparing for their role in the Dakar Rally will be kitted out even more effectively to soak up the constant fluctuations between gravel roads, desert tracks and mountain passes. Back in more “normal” territory, the MINI Countryman with off-road design displays its sporting talent and ambitions more clearly than ever when it comes to leaving the beaten track behind.
