Price and Grabham More Than Please With 2015 Golden Tyre Choice

Posted:

GoldenTyre have continued to prove their winning formula, partnering with the KTM Off-Road Racing team and Toby Price to win the 2015 edition of the world renowned Finke Desert race.

The 40th edition of the Finke Desert race was held on the Queens Birthday long weekend, with the race seeing riders race flat out across the gruelling, harsh and diverse desert surface from Alice Springs To Finke on Sunday before returning down the same 226km track the following day.

In just their first year partnering the most respected and dominant desert racing team in the pits over the decade, GoldenTyre not only raced to the outright victory but picked up an outstanding 1-2 result with Tye Simmonds coming home in second position behind Price.

‰ÛÏThis was our first year of using the GoldenTyres in the desert and the Off-Road scene here in Australia and we are having some really great results with them.‰Û
The success at the 40th running of the Finke desert race continues on an outstanding 2015 season to-date with GoldenTyres also powering the KTM Off-Road team to multiple outright and class victories in this years Australian Off-Road Championship.

Fitting out Toby Prices‰Ûªs 500 EXC-F, Simmonds 450 EXC-F and Daniel Sanders KTM 300 EXC, GoldenTyre has found class success with all three riders across a variety of different terrains culminating in a dominating performance at rounds five and six of the championship in South Australia taking the top three steps of the outright podium in the deep sand at Wanbi.

KTM Off-Road Team Manager Ben Grabham could not be more delighted with his decision to seek out GoldenTyre as the teams tyre of choice for the 2015 season.

‰ÛÏIn 2015 we started from scratch in a lot of ways with the team with all the Off-Road racing disciplines coming back under the one truck. ‰ÛÏ Grabham explained.

‰ÛÏWith the team racing such a wide variety of races from Enduro-cross, AORC and the Desert races we needed a Tyre company that had tyres available that could win in all the conditions we would be racing in.

‰ÛÏAfter looking around and having a chance to ride on the GoldenTyres and also speaking to our new team-member in Daniel Sanders who raced on them a lot in the sand last year we chased after them and so far so good in all conditions.‰Û
GoldenTyre representative, Phil Astley could not be happier with the partnership with KTM and show casing the wide variety of GoldenTyres that are available to the public on the biggest stage in Australia.

‰ÛÏWe could not be any happier with our relationship with the KTM Off-Road Racing team,‰Û
