Kappa – Official Partner to BRX – will support the team with all its team clothing and kit requirements for the Dakar Rally. Together, BRX and Kappa will ensure BRX are ready to compete in one of sport’s biggest tests of endurance, negotiating the gruelling conditions of the Saudi Arabian desert over a 7,646km (4,751-mile) race.
