Mini Countryman WRC on Stage

leave a comment »

It’s a new entry in the rallyscene, the Mini Countryman WRC and it’s doing well. I came across this movie where it is driving during a stage on a beautiful mountain road (with tarmac, that is) and shows a well-controlled oversteer. Have a look yourself!

Citroën DS3 WRC on the Road

For who can read French: the Citroën DS3 WRC is on the road. The car is painted in the colours of the sponsor – which means very colourful and bright. The C4 WRC had a victory in the last rally of the saison and the DS3 WRC has to be a worthy successor of the good old C4. Will it be? Let’s see first! Sebastian Loeb will be the driver again so the wheel will be in trusted hands. The competition will be tough: Ford also downsized making use of the Fiesta WRC and the Prodrive Mini Countryman WRC is a newcomer that has to prove better than the good old Subarus.

A new rallycar needs to be tested. Prodrive tested the brand new Mini Countryman rally edition in Portugal. This video shows the capabilities of this extra-ordinary but potentially popular rally car!
