Campana thrilled with MINI chance

Pierre Camapana delighted with MINI drive in Monte Carlo
Pierre Campana says he is thrilled to have been given the chance to compete with MINI on the opening round of the 2012 World Rally Championship in Monte Carlo.

The French driver will partner Dani Sordo on the season opener after the shock announcement that Kris Meeke will miss the event and is only likely to take part in selected rallies during the year ahead [See separate story HERE].

Campana took part in two WRC events last season in a MINI John Cooper Works run by the Drive-Pro team and he said he was honoured to get the chance to drive for the factory team as a result.

“I am thrilled to have been selected by MINI to join their squad for Monte-Carlo following our achievements this year,” he said. “It is a rally I know well and enjoy. I won the 2WD class last year, so I am pleased to bring my experience and to showcase my abilities on such a competitive event.

“I have enjoyed my time driving the MINI John Cooper Works WRC car in WRC and French championship events this year with Drive-Pro and together with the French Federation support, and I am honoured to be able to continue my association with this tremendous manufacturer into 2012 with this Monte Carlo participation.”

The French Federation dont throw money at no hopers-viz Loeb/Ogier.Campana can clearly drive and knows the event and has the Federation funds which is probably all Prodrive care about at this juncture.An old chestnut but if only the MSA adopted the french approach we wouldnt only have Kris in the frame.
