Mini downgrades its involvement in the WRC Programme
Late last week the talk around the motorsport press was that parent company BMW was preparing to pull the plug on the entire program as it had with the Sauber team in F1 a few years ago but while an announcement has been made, it’s not nearly as drastic as had been expected.
Prodrive seems optimistic that the new arrangement will actually enhance the program, not downgrade it. Seems this is what led to Kris Meeke being let go because of ‘budget constraints’
