New challenge for MINI at 2017 Baja Aragon - Round 7, FIA Cross Country Rally World cup.

Munich. A host of experienced drivers and navigators will take on the challenge of the Baja Aragon this weekend in #spain for Round 7 of the World Cup for FIA Cross Country Rallies.

Three MINI cars will be among the competitors at Aragon this weekend; two MINI John Cooper Works Rally crewed by #mikkohirvonen (FIN) with co-driver #andreasschulz (GER) and Jakub ‘Kuba’ Przygonski (POL) with co-driver #xavierpanseri (FRA) and one MINI All 4 #racing driven by #orlandoterranova (ARG) with co-driver #paulofiuza (PRT).

While Hirvonen and Schulz are both experienced rally competitors, driving together is a new opportunity for the pair. As one of Germany’ most successful Dakar competitors, with two victories to his name in the world’s most challenging #endurance race, Schulz was the perfect choice to support Hirvonen.
