Mini comeback as the firm rejoins the World Rally Championship

Mini is making a comeback on the international rally cicuit from 2011, competing in selected rounds before full involvement from 2012.

Mini is making a comeback on the international rally cicuit from 2011, competing in selected rounds before full involvement from 2012. The car charged with this task is the Mini Countryman WRC, which is being developed by Prodrive, in close co-operation with Mini, and is based on the production model. The heart of the racing car is a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder turbo-charged engine from BMW Motorsport. Ian Robertson, member of the board of management of BMW AG said: "The Mini Countryman provides an excellent basis from which to create a competitive racing car for the world championship. In Prodrive, we have a strong and experienced partner. We will work hard together over the coming months to ensure we get the project on track right from the word go." "This is a very exciting new motorsport programme," said Prodrive chairman David Richards. "During the 1960s MINI captured the imagination of the world when the tiny car took on the might of V8 powered Fords and won what was then one of the toughest motorsport events, the 4,000km Monte Carlo rally. I believe our new MINI will become a firm favourite of the latest generation of rally fans." Prodrive has been working on developing the MINI Countryman WRC since early 2009. The first test drive for the Mini Countryman WRC, which will also be available to customer teams, is planned for this autumn.

Some of Darwish's last words

"They see their tomorrows slipping out of their reach. And though it seems to them that everything outside this reality is heaven, yet they do not want to go to that heaven. They stay, because they are afflicted with hope." - Mahmoud Darwish, to attendees of the Palestine Festival of Literature, 2008

His life in brief: Born in a village near Galilee, he lived in exile for most of his life and started writing poetry after high school. He was arrested several times by Israel for what were deemed to be inciteful poems. Most of his work focused on the love and yearning for his homeland, and he was regarded the Palestinian poet of resistance. Over the course of his life, he published more than 30 poetry collections and books of prose, with his work translated into more than 20 languages. Many of his poems were set to music by Arab composers, most significantly Marcel Khalife. Darwish died on August 9, 2008 after undergoing heart surgery in the United States. He was later buried in Ramallah where a shrine was erected in his honour.
