The 2017 season: The planning has begun

-          11 world-cup rounds in 2017
-          Silk Way Rally will be a highlight

The end of the Dakar Rally represented at the same time the beginning of the planning for the forthcoming season. In addition to the FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup, there are numerous other events available all over the world, with the Silk Way Rally from Moscow, Russia, to Xian, China definitely representing a season highlight.

Meanwhile, the exact line-ups of MINI John Cooper Works Rally and MINI ALL4 Racing vehicles for the respective events have not yet been determined, to date. According to the current planning, X-raid won’t travel to Russia (Baja Northern Forest) but will contest the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge and the Qatar Sealine CC Rally. Furthermore, several MINI vehicles will compete in the Silk Way Rally. Which drivers will race in which events will be announced by us in due time.
