Bahrain Raid Xtreme all set to take on its first Dakar Rally

Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX) has completed all final preparations in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and is ready to start its first ever Dakar Rally.

BRX drivers Sebastien Loeb, co-driver Daniel Elena and Nani Roma with co-driver Alex Winocq took to the podium in the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, in Jeddah, after completing the Prologue stage of the Dakar Rally 2021.

Following the prologue, Sebastien Loeb will start stage one in tenth position, and Nani Roma in fifteenth. Both BRX drivers set off from Jeddah on the 3rd January, racing towards Bisha, on a route that takes competitors over almost 300 km of rough mountain tracks.

By taking to the podium with the Bahrain Raid Xtreme Hunter T1 car, Loeb and Roma signalled the start of their Dakar Rally 2021 adventure.

The driver line up for Bahrain Raid Xtreme brings a wealth of experience to the team, with nine-time World Rally Championship winner Sebastien Loeb and two-time Dakar Rally winner Nani Roma.

The drivers form part of a team that has the expertise of Prodrive behind it; with David Richards’ motorsport business pouring all of its title winning experience into the Hunter vehicles, in a bid to compete in motorsport’s biggest test of endurance.
