Munich. The celebrated annual #dakar #rally is an endurance spectacle of man and machine and takes place once again on the challenging terrain of South America, 2-14th January 2017

The 2017 #dakar #rally route will take in three countries (Paraguay, Bolivia, and Argentina) covering a distance of approximately 9000 km, of which more than 4000 km will be special stages. A longer duration at altitude has been planned for the 2017 #dakar, along with the usual assortment of strength-sapping desert-like heat, unforgiving dunes, rocky ravines and river beds. Add to this new navigation rules and the 2017 #dakar promises to be a #racing spectacle of some note.

The 2017 #dakar #rally will again play host to a large “MINI Family” consisting of seven cars with selected international crews – all under the protective wing of experienced #mini motorsport partner X-raid.

The 2017 #dakar #rally will also see the race debut of the new #minijohncooperworksrally; a car built to win from experience gained with four successive #dakar #rally wins (2012-2015), and four FIA World cup titles.

Full details of the new #minijohncooperworksrally are contained within the #mini 2017 #dakar #rally Media Pack– complemented by stunning images – and a detailed analysis of the #mini Family drivers and co-drivers. Additional chapters include driver interviews, #dakar #rally facts and figures, glossary and the foreword by Mr. Sebastian Mackensen, Senior Vice President #mini.
