Just as I had told him David Richards a Automundo last year, the Bahrain Raid Xtreme will add a third car to its structure after the team's debut in the rally Dakar Rally past. The driver of that vehicle is an Argentine: the Mendoza Orly Newfoundland, who until last year was a pilot of the X-Raid.

Terranova will make its official debut for the team at the Baja Spain Aragon, competition that will be held this Friday and Saturday and that awards points for the FIA Bajas Cross Country World Cup.

Orly Newfoundland"This is a big and important step for me and I am very excited to join a new team, which wants to become a major player in cross country rallying."Orly said.

The premiere comes, precisely, in the race that the cuyano won in 2019. The Argentine will also have his first experience with his new navigator: the Spanish Dani oliveras.

The other two vehicles will be driven by the French Sébastien Loeb and Spanish Nani Rome, BRX pilots since the project began.

Both will test elements that will then be transferred to the hunter evolution to be used in the Dakar 2022 under the new regulation for T1 which will allow equal performance between 4 × 4 buggies and 4 × 4 vehicles.

The competition will start this Friday with a special test of 180 kilometers and will finish the Saturday after two selective ones, the first with 112,910 km and the rest with 208,360 km.
