ARE MINIS RACED?
We're extremely excited about bringing MINIs back into racing. We have already received classification from most of the major amateur and racing sanctioning bodies in the U.S. and we expect to continue our heritage of success in competitions. Of course, we also strongly encourage amateur racers to get out there and have as much fun getting involved with rallies, races and autocrossing as possible. And because last year ended on such a high note, the new MINI WRC, which will contest the FIA World Rally Championship from 2011, will receive its world premiere in Paris. This year, the MINI Countryman, the model for which the MINI WRC is based upon, is a big inspiration for this rally.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MINI COUNTRYMAN MODELS AND OTHER MODELS
Two things. The first is its size. As the first four-door member of the MINI family, the Countryman has a rear bench to seat five passengers comfortably and boasts 16.5 feet of cubic goodness in the boot (41.3 cu. feet with the rear seats folded down). That's a lot of kayaks. Or TVs. Or ottomans. The second difference is that the Countryman is one of two MINI models to come with an optional All4 all-wheel drive system, arming adventure-minded motorers with the means to conquer challenging terrain. The Paceman is the other.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MINI COUPE MODELS AND OTHER MODELS?
First and foremost, the Coupe is a two-seater. So you and your privileged co-pilot will enjoy extra privacy, even peppier acceleration and a slightly higher top speed than comparable MINI models, courtesy of the Coupe's remarkably aerodynamic design. Which brings us to the Coupe’s other distinguishing feature – the active, retractable rear spoiler. The speed-sensitive spoiler automatically deploys at high speeds to ensure the rear wheels of the ferociously fast Coupe are planted firmly on the pavement, for maximum thrust at all times.
