Motorex KTM Finke Desert racers first and second podium performers, Ben Grabham (Grabbo), and Brad Williscroft (Wonka), have teamed up to create Team Australia, and take on the Americans in the famed Baja 1000, on Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula from November 19 to 22.

Grabbo and Wonka were un-stoppable on board the KTM 505 XC-F at the 2009 Finke Desert Race with Grabbo taking the win, and Wonka in second.

The 2009 Baja 1000 is normally a point to point race, however this year it will be a 650 mile loop race, starting and finishing in Ensenada (1000 kilometres).

They will enter the Baja 1000 as a united force, sharing the one bike, a KTM 530 EXC, with each rider competing in different stages of the event.  While one rider is racing, the other will be driving a support vehicle on a shorter route to the next check point, before swapping over again.

The biggest challenge for Grabham, and Williscroft with their entry is raising $25,000 needed to get themselves over to the event, with flights, freight, entry fees, accommodation, and mechanical requirements.

The duo are therefore calling on the support of industry, and fans to help raise the $25,000 needed for their Team Australia to enter the Baja 1000.

In order to help raise the funds, KTM Australia has created some sponsorship packs for the fans to be a part of Grabbo and Wonka’s Baja ride.

For $150 you can be a part of the Baja ride, with your own name on the bike graphics, plus you will receive a KTM cap and sticker sheet, and a signed team photo of Grabbo and Wonka.   You will also be added to a sponsor distribution list for behind the scenes updates prior to the racing, and during the actual event.  To register go to the Baja 1000 link on

Grabbo and Wonka will be visiting clubs around NSW to launch their ride, and also promote the sale of the sponsorship packages.  Track visits will include:

Sunday 26 July – Lakes
Saturday 22 August – Kembla
Sunday 23 August – Appin
Sat-Sun 19-20 September – Lithgow-Bathurst Sunny Corner Trail Bike Ride

In addition to the track visits, Grabbo and Wonka will be holding two exclusive trail ride days in conjunction with Sunny Corner Trail Tours for $150pp per location at Clarence on Friday 21 August, and the Sunny Corner State Forest on Friday 28 August.   The trail riding will be from 9am to 4pm and include lunch, plus tuition on various terrain throughout the course of the day.

For this initiative riders must have a registered bike, and be capable on off-road enduro terrain.  There are only 20 spots per ride day available, and placement will be confirmed on a first in basis.   To register go to the Baja 1000 link on  Once spots are full this will also be announced on the site, however KTM will be keeping a reserves list, if this list reaches 20 a second trail ride date will be announced.
The Baja 1000 is promoted by Score International Off-Road Racing
