Meeke signs for Mini WRCposted in RSCOT02 | 09 | 2010

    COLIN McRAE protege Kris Meeke, who heads to RallyScotland next month still fighting to defend his Intercontinental Rally Championship title, has reportedly signed to drive for Mini in next year's World Rally Championship.

    Ever since it became clear Mini, under the ever-watchful eyes of Prodrive boss Dave Richards — the man who steered McRae to his world championship with Subaru in 1995 — was to return to the WRC, the Irishman's name has been linked with a seat.

    It's expected Meeke — who emphasised his "focus remains on this year and winning rallies with Peugeot" — will be partnered by former WRC champ Marcus Gronholm. The Finn will test the new Mini Countryman WRC for the first time in Portugal next week.
