Jakub ‘Kuba’ Przygonski (POL), along with unchanging co-driver Tom
Colsoul (BEL), was towering to a tip of a FIA World Cup driver
standings. This position apparently reflects a peculiarity of racing
constructed by a immature Polish convene star so distant in 2018; it also
demonstrates a finish trustworthiness of a MINI John Cooper Works
underneath challenging racing conditions.

John Cooper Works Buggy, that saw a entrance during a 2018 Dakar.

– Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge 2018 (Round 3) – as a MINI pairing, they
achieved a equitable second place in Leg 1 and took a win in Leg 3.
There’s no doubt that Alphand, being rival as he is, will be
looking to improved these formula via a Kazakhstan Rally’s
off-road stages.

gait of Yazeed Al Rajhi (KSA) in a MINI John Cooper Works Rally. Al
Rajhi is penetrating to place his name serve adult a heading container within the
FIA World Cup. Helping him to grasp this is co-driver Timo
Gottschalk (GER). Together they make a challenging pairing and they
could really good change Przygonski’s skeleton for success.


Two new additions to a MINI Family will be benefaction in Kazakhstan
and both will contest for a initial time in a MINI John Cooper Works
Rally. Victor Khoroshavtsev (RUS) is a latest MINI Family motorist and
compatriot Dmitriy Pavlov will take adult chateau in a co-driver’s seat.



Jakub ‘Kuba’ Przygonski: “This time will be the
second time Tom and we have raced together during Kazakhstan Rally. Last
year it was good competition that we enjoyed even yet it was not easy with
navigation and was utterly wily in a dunes. Now we are heading in
a World Cup sequence and this competition will be really critical for
us to get a lot of points to keep on march to a finish of a season.
This means we not usually have to quarrel for points though also to take care
in navigation and not repairs a car.”
