mini-dakar17-day12-1– All three MINI John Cooper Works Rally cars complete their first Dakar
– Three MINI in the top 10 despite extreme challenges of this event
– 7 out of 8 MINI entries complete full 2017 Dakar distance

Seven out of all eight MINI competitors who entered the 2017 Dakar completed the route.

The 2017 Dakar has, as always, delivered a unique set of challenges for the drivers and co-drivers brave enough to tackle it. Poor weather conditions and related flooding have caused the cancellation of two stages and a reduction in distance of others, leading to the loss of some of the most technical parts of the track from the course and a total distance of 1,400 km less than planned.
