Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX) drivers faced a technically challenging day of driving at the Dakar Rally 2021 yesterday but still managed to stay in the top 10, reports GDNOnline.
Starting off the fifth stage from Riyadh towards Al Qaisumah, the drivers had winding stony tracks to navigate over the course of the 661km stage. Sebastien Loeb suffered an early navigational error before a series of punctures that added nearly an hour to his day’s driving, leading to him finishing 20th for the day with a stage time of 05:59:43, +50:18 off the stage leader. This puts Loeb in 10th overall, +1:40:07 behind the current leader.
Fellow BRX driver Nani Roma was hunting down a top three place at certain points of the stage, but also suffered his own navigational difficulties that placed him eighth with a stage time of 05:19:56, +10:31 off the leader. After five stages, Roma keeps himself in the top 10, seventh overall, with +1:24:56 behind French driver Stephane Peterhansel.
