Campana will compete in Rally Monte-Carlo with MINI
He is confirmed
French rally star Pierre Campana has this week been confirmed as part of MINI’s entry in the 2012 Monte Carlo rally, which takes place in January.
Pierre has been chosen as a result of his performances driving the MINI John Cooper Works WRC in 2011 and will be part of a two-car team to tackle the legendary rally alongside Dani Sordo.
The news comes following a fantastic year for the Corsican having won half of all rallies he has contested in a MINI John Cooper Works WRC car with French squad Drive-Pro, including participation in two World Rally Championship rounds in Germany and France-Alsace.
Such is Pierre’s natural rallying prowess, the French automotive sport federation (FFSA) made him the figurehead for their Rally Team France in the second half of 2011.
Pierre Campana: “I am thrilled to have been selected by MINI to join their squad for Monte-Carlo following our achievements this year. It is a rally I know well and enjoy. I won the 2WD class last year, so I am pleased to bring my experience and to showcase my abilities on such a competitive event. I have enjoyed my time driving the MINI John Cooper Works WRC car in WRC and French championship events this year with Drive-Pro and together with the French Federation support, and I am honoured to be able to continue my association with this tremendous manufacturer into 2012 with this Monte Carlo participation.”
