Rallye du Maroc, round nine of the 10-round series of the 2015 FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup, ended (09-10-2015) in glorious victory for MINI with Nasser Al-Attiyah (QAT) and co-driver Mathieu Baumel (FRA) taking the overall win in a MINI ALL4 Racing.

Today’s win is Al-Attiyah’s and MINI’s consecutive triumph at Rallye du Maroc, mirroring the win achieved in the 2014 edition. Starting today’s final race (Leg 5) in first position overall, Nasser Al-Attiyah and Mathieu Baumel drove a tactical race across 314 km of “The Loop Of Agadir” to finish in eighth place – perfectly placed to take the overall win.

Talking about today’s success, Al-Attiyah said: “I’m very happy about my victory here in Morocco and the points I gained in the FIA world cup. It was my first priority to increase the gap in the FIA standings to more than 30 points. Now we are ready for the Dakar Rally!” Read More »

Round nine of the 10-round series of the 2015 FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup has seen a frenzied bout of action during the first two days of the Rallye du Maroc 2015, Morroco (3-9th October). After two arduous days racing on the rock strewn Moroccan landscape, a competitive order is now being established with MINI ALL4 racing crews prominently featured.

At the end of the second day (Leg 2 of 5), the MINI ALL4 Racing crew – and present championship leaders – of Nasser Al-Attiyah (QAT) and co-driver Mathieu Baumel (FRA) are well placed in second position, just 00:01:24 adrift of the leader. Read More »

Round nine of the 10-round series of the 2015 FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup sees seven MINI ALL4 Racing line up to compete at the Rallye du Maroc, Morroco (3-9th October). This penultimate round is also the last desert rally of the 2015 championship and will serve well as preparation for the 2016 edition of the prestigious Dakar Rally.

Relishing close action at Rallye du Maroc will be present leader Nasser Al-Attiyah (QAT), ably supported once more by co-driver Mathieu Baumel (FRA). At the same time, Al-Attiyah is well aware that he and his co-driver could leave Morocco with the world title in their hands – and MINI once again FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup champion. A maximum of 60 points can be scored in Morocco and if Al-Attiyah succeeds in stretching his lead to more than 30 points he will lift the title because only 30 points will be awarded at the next and last race, Baja Portalegre.
