Off-Road: KTM's Grabham and Williscroft ready for Baja 1000


Next month Motorex KTM Off-Road racers Ben Grabham (Grabbo), and Brad Williscroft (Wonka), will take to Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula for the famed Baja 1000 with extra support from Force Accessories who have come on board as a major team supporter.

Taking place from November 19 to 22 the Baja 1000 will see Grabbo and Wonka 2009 Finke Desert Race first and second podium holders, ride the KTM 530 EXC over a 631 mile (1000 kilometre)  loop racing, starting and finishing in Ensenada.

The duo have been trying to raise much needed funds to contribute to the entry fees and expenses required to enter Baja, which have now been eased with a welcoming donation from Force Accessories.

Force Accessories develop and distribute specialty motorcycle products to enhance protection during racing with their primary products being radiator guards, bash plates and case savers.   The company has supported riders in many of Australia’s leading off-road events including the Australian Safari, Finke Desert Race, Australian Four Day Enduro, Hattah Desert Race and Condo 750.

Now setting their sights on Baja, Force Accessories, Director Brian Finn, said, “It’s a great privilege to Force Accessories to help out with the Team Australia assault on the Baja 1000.  When we heard of the effort KTM was putting in to help out Grabbo and Wonka it was something we just had to be involved in, particularly when it includes two of the greatest Australian off-road riders, and we wish Grabbo and Wonka a safe and successful event.”

Motorex KTM Off-Road Racing will feature Force Accessories on their racing uniforms for the Baja 1000 and also use their products on the KTM 530 EXC race bike.
