We are excited to be a part of The Unlimited Class at the 20th running of La Carrera Panamericana, and only the second year for modern cars in this historic race. La Carrera has 100 classic entries for 2007 and 20 modern entires in The Unlimited Class, which is where our MINI will compete for prizes and glory. The 2005 MINI Cooper S rally car is driven by the son & father team Colin Herrick and his father and navigator, Eric Herrick.
