TOBY PRICE SECURES FACTORY KTM DAKAR RALLY RIDE
Toby Price signs factory rally deal, Antoine Meo to race Dakar 2016…
Standout performer in this year’s Dakar Rally, Australia’s Toby Price has been officially announced as a KTM Red Bull Rally Factory Team rider.
With Marc Coma calling time on his racing career, Price has been drafted into the main team and is a rider many are now calling one of the future stars of rally following his podium result in his debut Dakar ride last January.
Price will be joined by Matthias Walkner, Sam Sunderland and Jordi Viladoms.
Along with the news of KTM’s A-team rally reshuffle, they’ve also announced an additional satellite team to include none other than Antoine Meo.
Meo has been long rumoured to have an interest in rally, and now like Pela Renet (see separate story), he’ll contest the 2016 Dakar Rally.
Meo will be joined by Laia Sanz and Chilean Pablo Quintanilla.
