A new country has popped on the offical mini.com website: South Africa.
What makes the SA site different is there is a contest there. The winners (plural) will be flown to Lisbon, Portual for a 3 day driving tour, behind the wheel of, you guessed it, new MINIs! One of the highlights of the 3 days is a driving school conducted by legendary Mini rally driver Rauno Aaltonen.
And here is the best part: The contest rules do not specifiy that entrants be South Africa residents. It appears to be open for anyone other than BMW employees.
It's worth a try...
