MINI to repeat history with Winning Numbers
The MINI WRC Team is planning to carry numbers 37 and 52 on their MINI John Cooper Works WRCs in this year's World Rally Championship.
Kris Meeke will have the number 37, while Dani Sordo is 52 as the MINI team bids to recreate history when they tackle selected WRC rounds this season. The cars will also be painted red with white roofs, to reflect the marque’s traditional rally colours.
Paddy Hopkirk used number 37 when he won the Monte Carlo Rally in a Mini Cooper S in 1964, and Timo Makinen's Monte winning Mini ran as number 52 in 1965.
