41st edition of the mythic Dakar Rally, which still bears in its name the epic of the origins, but which was held for the eleventh successive year in South America, for the first time entirely in Peru. A race that confirmed to be very demanding for drivers and vehicles, along routes that have nothing to envy of the Saharan dunes. Departure from the capital city Lima on 6 January 2019 and arrival on 17 January 2019 after 10 exhausting stages. For those who love adventure travel, the collateral events of the actual race were equally interesting. In this sense, what is remarkable is "In the footsteps of the Dakar", a journey of discovery of Peru driving the Mini Countryman SD. The small fleet of Minis took the opportunity of the Dakar Rally to make a stop together with the crews of X-raid team, engaged in the race with Mini 4x4 and two-drive-wheel buggies. Moments of sharing and talk especially during bivouacs, in fascinating locations. Many hints for storytelling to dream. Comfortably! Because the Mini Countryman SD were obviously equipped with high-quality roof top tents signed by Autohome.
