Dakar 2021: a remarkable position in the top 5!

Dakar 2021 : a remarkable position in the top 5 !

Back in the Dakar 2021 as the official partner of new Bahrain Raid Xtreme team, Bardahl is proud of having contributed to a top performance.

On last Friday (January 15th), the Nani Roma/Alexandre Winocq crew arrived at the end of the 8,000 km of the Dakar 2021. Without encountering any problem during the last stage from Yanbu to Jeddah, they kept the 5th position in the overall ranking they had since the middle of the competition.


This is indeed a top performance, as, in the Dakar history, a new team with a new car has never performed such a good race.

Remember that Hunter, the Bahrain Raid Xtreme, has started running at the end of September 2020. Before the Dakar 2021, this car had not taken part in any competition. This is, therefore, a small feat to which Bardahl has contributed.

This is true that the second crew, composed of Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena, was less fortunate. Suspension triangle break, several punctures, fast assistance truck that breaks down during the marathon stage; the Hunter #305 was very unlucky during this Dakar 2021. However, the crew showed solidarity by giving one of their spare wheels to Nani and Alex during the second part of the marathon stage. In anyway, they will come back stronger next year!

Let us not forget that the Dakar is a race of experts. The first 5 of the overall ranking are all “Legends” of the Dakar. Except for Jakub Przygonski (4th), everyone has won the competition at least once.

In short, as official partner in additives and lubricants of the Bahrain Raid Xtreme team, Bardahl is proud of associating the brand to this remarkable performance!
