Mini revolution expected in Dakar Rally

Stephane Peterhansel has too much respect for the Dakar Rally to consider another victory by him or his teammates in Minis a certainty.

Few, though, are betting against Peterhansel or one of the drivers of the five other Minis entered by German team X-raid from winning the world's toughest rally starting on Saturday in Peru for the first time.

Last year, X-raid Minis came first and second, and all five placed in the top 10.

This time, X-raid manager Sven Quandt has entered six Minis, and a BMW for good measure, to press their domination, but three drivers are favourites: Peterhansel of France, Nani Roma of Spain and Krzysztof Holowczyc of Poland.
