Mini win the Dakar Rally
Mini has finally won a rally again! But it’s still not the WRC. Here are the highlights...
Posted: 17 Jan 2012
From the very first special stage in Mar del Plata, Argentina, the overall lead was held by at least one of the plucky little fellas. The winning green Mini (does that make it Marvin, JLS fans?) was piloted by Dakar legend Stéphane Peterhansel. Incredibly, this his was his tenth Dakar win and fourth on four wheels (the other six were on two). One must presume he has lungs like dirty hoover bags.
