Lucky Fan to Get Joyride in MINI WRC Car at Goodwood

The largest garden party in the world will be the ideal setting for some sideways action off the beaten track in the MINI John Cooper Works WRC. We are of corse talking about the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 1st to the 3rd. MINI will also give one very lucky member of the public the once in a life time chance to be a passenger in one of these iconic cars while it is being thrashed around.

The lucky person, who will sit beside works rally driver, Kris Meeke (GB), on Sunday morning while the car goes through the 1.67 mile loose-surface forest rally stage. The winner will be decided as a result of the raffle to be held at the annual glittering ball on the Saturday night.

"When we were invited to be part of this event, which has a worldwide reputation for being one of the biggest on the motorsport calendar, we were delighted. The affection felt for MINI as a brand is amazing, and I am confident the fans at Goodwood will give it as enthusiastic a welcome as I watched it have on its World Rally Championship debut in Sardinia. We wanted to make it even more special, so we felt giving a prize that money could not buy would be a great start," Dr Kay Segler, Senior Vice President Brand Management MINI, commented.

Based on the MINI Countryman production model, the car was tested thoroughly through the last few months and its final livery and color scheme was presented to the media in early April.
