Mini Cooper to WRC Mexico 2017?

Last year I was contacted by a few friends in Mexico asking if we would bring the Mini to Rally Mexico 2016 using the NACAM championship. It was a nice idea and with no rallies in Costa Rica it was something worth thinking about. After the engine misfire issue our hopes of competing in Rally Mexico 2016 were over. Once again we have no rallies in Costa Rica, the Mini is almost rally ready so again we plan a serious attempt to try and be at rally Mexico 2017.

Last year a fellow Mini/rally driver suggested Gofundme , at that time I never heard of this site but after some investigation I see there are many motorsport team campaigns so I thought I’d give it a try. Most of the cost will be the shipping logistics’ and entry fees getting the Mini from Costa Rica to Mexico and back.

Like with the help we received after the roll we plan to put the donators names on the car. If we get 9537 people then the mini is going to need a bill board!

Please take some time to read the campaign and hopefully you or someone you know will be interested in a donation. Thanks for your time.

Great idea Chris & I hope you can do this. Press on to Mexico!

Let's all break into our piggy banks & use some spare donut money to help Chris make it to Mexico.

Thanks guys, I know gofundme is not the best option but I've started early to see how things go.

Thanks for the first 2 donations, I really appreciate it. Just like with all my posts you can expect a detailed and fun report up to the rally.

Hey Chris! Does this mean we get our name on the car twice?
Good luck my friend.

You mean we have options? Face, name and/or Face & name?

I think a small name in print is enough.

Will get this done this week for sure. Good luck with this and hope to see you on the roster in 2017

Thanks Don, yes this coworker has been pushing to get his face on the car but if I'm going to a professional rally I want the Mini to look professional. A name is good enough.
