Six ALL4 MINIs head to the Baja Aragon

- Al-Attiyah fights for the world cup lead
- Debut appearance for Mikko Hirvonen

Spain’s Baja Aragon (24th to 26th July, 2015) is one of the events on the calendar that are particularly popular with the drivers. Consequently, X-raid will be represented by six MINI ALL4 Racing vehicles, in the sixth race of FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup. The Baja Aragon held at the city of Teruel is the second of the four Bajas representing the ‘European season’. X-raid has truly fond memories of the Spanish event: After all, the seven previous editions all were won by a car from Trebur.
