Interview

Roma to do his 25th Dakar with the Bahrain Raid Xtreme team

Nani Roma is synonymous with the Dakar. That is why, every year, the Catalan native shakes up the motor sport community with the announcement of another go in the world’s most difficult rally. For his 25th participation, the two-time winner and lone Spaniard to have won in both the car and motorcycle category announced that he will drive the all-new BRX T1 prototype entered by the Bahrain Raid Extreme team. The team created by Prodrive International is a partnership between Prodrive and Mumtalakat, which is a sovereign fund of the government of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Team director, David Richards with six WRC titles, five category wins in the 24 Hours of Le Mans ad four British Touring Car titles to his credit, assures that “the Dakar is to motor racing what Everest is to mountain climbers: one of the biggest challenges there is. And the time has come for Prodrive to take it on.” Nani’s impressive Dakar career includes nine editions on two wheels and 15 on four. In 2004, he won on a KTM in the days of the Dakar in Africa. And in 2014 he won with MINI in South America. Nani Roma employed consistency and speed to finish 2nd on the 2019 Dakar behind Qatari Nasser Al-Attiyah, which was sweet revenge after his big crash on stage 3 of the 2018 Dakar. In 2020, Nani overcame multiple punctures and mechanical problems with the all-new Borgward car and made it to the finish. It was also the first collaboration with co-driver Daniel Oliveras, who now joins him on this sensational project. Along with team-mate, nine-time World Rally Champion Sébastien Loeb, Nani carried out the first test phases with the Bahrain Raid Xtreme team and his new car. The prototype completed its first 2,000 kilometres around Milbrook (England), while in November it was put to the test in the deserts of Dubai on terrain very similar to that of Saudi Arabia. Enthusiastic after his first encounter with the about the car, Nani guarantees its reliability: "I did everything I could to break it ... and I failed!

N.R.: Everyone in the BRX team is ambitious, which is motivates me a lot. I am looking forward to this trip with the team and to use my experience in all areas to go for victory on the Dakar. This is an opportunity not to be missed. The combination of Mumtalakat in their support of motor sport, with the experience of David Richards and Prodrive in building winning cars, is a sign of real change in the Dakar.
Any driver will tell you that you know if you have a good car within minutes of getting behind the wheel. And for me, everything was positive: the brakes, the steering, the engine, the suspension. Every time we got out of the car; we learned something new. There's still a lot to do, but that's normal with such a new car. I did my best to break it... and I failed!”

D.O: "The fact that Nani chose me and trusted me was a dream for me because from an early age I began to follow his career. It was a challenge for me to make him feel comfortable with me. Last year, we were able to do the Rally of Morocco and the Baja Portalegre before the Dakar and I learned a lot from him. We ran the Dakar with the desire to get a good result, but luck wasn't on our side.
When Nani talked to me about the BRX project, it was another dream come true for me as Prodrive has always been a reference for many in the World Rally Championship and now we can work with this great team. The car impressed us immediately. They have built a proper race car, with the aim of achieving great results. There is a very good atmosphere in the team. Enthusiasm and the desire to improve every day can be felt, and this family atmosphere will help us a lot and make the car more competitive. We all know that this is a new project, but the objective will always be to fight to be ahead. It is a very long rally and anything can happen, but I think we can be competitive from the start.”
