How Prodrive plans to use trial by Dakar to spur it to victory

By:

Having tasted plenty of success in the World Rally Championship in the past, Prodrive took its off-road excursions to a new level with its first Dakar Rally entry this year. Now well-versed in the challenges that the famous rally-raid event possesses, Prodrive can learn from those lessons for next year's tilt at Dakar honours

Despite its recent relocations, the Dakar Rally remains one of motorsport’s most brutal endurances; an event that requires blood, sweat, tears, skill, bravery and a fair portion of luck just to reach the finish. It’s one of the last great motorsport adventures, a 7,646km marathon across the treacherous Saudi Arabian desert.

So to conquer the Dakar is a monumental feat and to achieve glory at your first attempt is extremely rare as Prodrive found with its Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX) project in January. Such a trial has ensured work to tame next year’s event has already started in earnest.
