2019 Dakar Rally

03 January 2019


Munich. This year’s (6-17th January) edition of the
Dakar will see MINI Motorsport and its motorsport partner X-raid
represented by two vehicle types: MINI John Cooper Works Buggy and
MINI John Cooper Works Rally.


Dakar Rally 2019 is almost upon the eight MINI Motorsport vehicles
set to compete in what is recognised as the most demanding
long-distance cross-country rally in the motorsport calendar. For
2019, Peru has been selected as the Dakar hosting country; its desert
landscape and mountain tracks to provide 5,000 km of off-road racing
action that will not only test the competing teams’ vehicles but the
racing crews and riders.


Full information on the MINI Dakar challengers, the teams and crews,
and racing heritage of MINI, plus much more can be found within two
MINI Dakar Media Guides released today.
