LinkedIn +

Brake manufacturer AP Racing has become a technical partner to Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX). The team’s car, the Prodrive Hunter, has recently been re-designed to meet new FIA T1+ cross country regulations and will compete at the 44th running of the Dakar Rally, due to take place in Saudi Arabia in January 2022.

Alongside billet monobloc calipers, AP says it is also supplying its latest D drive 355mm brake disc assemblies, a pull type pedal box with master cylinders and its 184mm cerametallic clutch for the updated Hunter T1+.

Richard Gregory, head of sales at AP Racing, commented, “We’re thrilled to be working with Prodrive on such a prestigious initiative. The Hunter looks and sounds fantastic – and with our help, will stop as powerfully too. Prodrive and AP Racing are shining examples of the passion and technical excellence of the UK’s motorsport industry and it’s great to be working alongside the BRX team.”
