The car was driven by the duo Nani Roma and Sebastian Loeb, to test it before officially driving it in the Saudi Dakar Rally next year. The team drove the car for a distance of nearly 2000 km, equivalent to roughly four stages of the “Dakar Rally”.

This is not the first time that the drivers of Rome and Loeb have tested new cars, as both are known for their skill and ability to test the car to the extreme, especially with the presence of a distinct car that supports their performance. Both drivers expressed how easy it was to drive the new Bahrain Raid Extreme Team car.
Commenting on the test, Sebastian Loeb, the driver of the Bahrain Raid Extreme Team, said, “Today I was able to test the new car, and as soon as I drove it I felt that it has good balance and great strength. The car was also easy to steer even in difficult conditions, and I believe we are able to develop its potential after further testing. I look forward to going to the Middle East in November and test the car on the desert sands. ”
