BP Sponsors MINI WRC Team
MUNICH, Germany – The MINI WRC Team is proud of being associated with premium brands, so its sponsorship from BP Ultimate fuels fits perfectly into this category. As the two MINI John Cooper Works WRCs compete on day two of Neste Oil Rally Finland, the distinctive logos can be seen prominently displayed above the front wheel arches of car number 37 driven by Dani Sordo (ES) and Carlos del Barrio (ES) and number 52 driven by Kris Meeke (GB) and Paul Nagle (IR).
“Our association with BP joins two great British brands as the MINI WRC Team builds its portfolio of like-minded, top level partners. We look forward to working with BP, whose Ultimate products are recommended by MINI Motorsport,” said David Richards, Team Principal.
“BP is delighted to sponsor the MINI WRC Team and is looking forward to the remaining rallies in 2011, and the full slate of rallies in 2012,” said Michael Ulmer, BP Global Account Manager MINI.
