Press Release.

16th January 2014.

 

A MINI one-two on stage 11 at 2014 Dakar Rally // Orlando Terranova wins, overall leader Nani Roma 2nd.

Munich (DE). Orlando Terranova (AR) in his orange MINI ALL4 Racing has won stage 11 at the 2014 Dakar Rally. The Monster Energy X-raid Team driver finished the 605km-long route from Antofagasta to El Salvador (both CL) in 5:58 hours, his teammate Joan "Nani" Roma (ES) finished 10:57 minutes behind him in 2nd place.

"A great result for me today," Orlando Terranova said after crossing the finish line in El Salvador. "It was a tough stage again. We had to be really careful again because part of the route was held in the Atacama desert once more, where you can get stuck quiet quickly in the sand. But I had no problems today. My MINI ALL4 Racing showed a really strong performance and again proved to be really reliable throughout the day."

Joan "Nani" Roma in his yellow MINI ALL4 Racing is still leading teammate Stéphane Peterhansel (FR), who finished 4th today, by 5:32 minutes in the overall classification. Nasser Al-Attiyah (QT) in the predominantly white MINI ALL4 Racing is currently 3rd overall while today's stage winner Orlando Terranova is 4th, 1:03.39 hours behind the leader. Four MINI ALL4 Racing cars in the top five – an extra proof of reliability at the toughest rally in the world.

Tomorrow's 350km-long stage 12 will lead from El Salvador to La Serena (both CL). The drivers will start in the mountain region around El Salvador and have to find the quickest way downhill to the Atacama desert once more. Here the drivers have to be careful again not to get stuck in the extremely fine sand.

MINI at the 2014 Dakar Rally.

A total of eleven MINI ALL4 Racing compete in the 2014 Dakar. All are based on the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman, modified by the factory-supported X-raid Team to meet the high demands of the Dakar Rally which is today’s pinnacle of off-road motorsports. With a combination of power, reliability and efficiency the MINI ALL4 Racing proved its competiveness right from its first Dakar start in 2011 while also winning the hearts of the fans from the word go.

On only its second Dakar appearance, the MINI ALL4 Racing made the big breakthrough by winning the 2012 Dakar Rally. In 2013 the MINI brand proved that its Dakar success was no flash in the pan by defending its title at the first attempt. This year, the X-raid Team and the MINI brand are aiming at clinching their third consecutive Dakar title when the 2014 Dakar ends in Valparaiso, Chile, on 18th January.
