Mini Gets Harry Hunt For Dakar Rally 2015 Challenge
MINI UK is proud to announce British rally driver, Harry Hunt, as the new MINI brand ambassador and one of youngest contenders for the Dakar Rally 2016 title.
As part of the MINI ALL4 Racing team, London-based Hunt, 26, will drive 10,000 kilometres across deserts, mountains, sand dunes and salt flats through South America in the ultimate orienteering and endurance test.
2016 will represent the first time Hunt competes in the Dakar Rally but he has already made big strides in the world of rally driving. He was named ‘Rookie of the Year’ in his first year of world championship rallying in 2011 and more recently earned a podium place at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge this year on his debut in the MINI ALL4 Racing. MINI ALL4 Racing driver Nasser Al-Attiyah won the Dakar Rally in 2015, securing MINI its fourth consecutive title.
