Mini WRC project is clinically dead. Or is it?

  • Mini/Prodrive? Think about BMW/Williams partnership in F1 – it also went wrong. Maybe, as Lauda said, German and British cultures can’t really co-exist.

    Prodrive should’ve gone for a different car manufacturer: MG or Lada, those guys have got cash to spend. Now they’re all in the WTCC…

    Love Mini WRC cars, they look great. Shame but that’s life. I heard Motorsport Italia will take over from Prodrive in terms of running the cars for the rest of 2012.

      MG went to the BTCC, sorry, my mistake – too much port to keep myself warm last night. Since MG is Chinese, I probably thought about Honda’s WTCC programme and then wrote MG by mistake.
