WRC » MINI launches 'most stunning car' in WRC


David Richards: We have been working towards this moment for more than two years and it is truly exciting to be launching the MINI WRC Team and what I believe is the most stunning car in World Rallying, the MINI John Cooper Works WRC.

Ye i thought the media would've played up the fact we have a very talented british driver for the first time since Burns/Mcrae.

Also a little dissapointed the mini wrc wasnt ready for a full assault on the 2011 wrc, I can appreciate it takes time to design a wrc car (i work for a wrc team). But it just seems prodrive take a long time to do things, hopefully they prove it was worth the wait and win a rally.

However im still not convinced this car will be competitive due to the size of the base vehicle compared to citroen's ds3 and ford's fiesta.

I do think that Meeke will really shine in the new Mini. Taz, you are never going to get a sensible comment about Meeke from a Guy who calls himself "KrisMeekeSucks"

He has a simular style and Approach that Colin had, maybe not the most mature attitude to have, but he will gain Huge Respect for it with his speed and attack as did Colin

I am excited about the Mini prospects, at least with Sordo we know the Car will work on the Black Stuff too

I think its finally starting to look good in the pictures too in the Traditional colour scheme

@Taz

Yes I have spectated on rallies and no I have not seen Meeke drive to be truthful. I don't care how fast he seems to be but he never brings home good results. He has failed miserably in the WRC events he entered.

Has he won any important rally????????
