Mini Countryman WRC teaser clip – Click above to watch video after the jump

Mini is venturing back into the World Rally Championship fold. That's right, we said "back into," because in the 60's, Mini decided to take its Cooper and go rallying. This wasn't simply a half-cocked effort either; Mini won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1964, 1965 and 1967. Now the automaker is going full-tilt yet again by campaigning a Prodrive-prepared Countryman in the 2011 WRC season.

A teaser clip is in order to help get you psyched over Mini's upcoming rally run. Thankfully, Mini has just such a clip and it's available for your viewing pleasure after the jump.
