KOREY MCMAHON TO LEAD GASGAS OFF-ROAD PROGRAM
Young Australian racer, Korey McMahon, will continue with GASGAS in 2023, set to race in a number of events including the AORC, Australian 4-Day Enduro (A4DE), Hattah Desert Race, Finke Desert Race and GNCC Australia races.
McMahon is a true jack-of-all-trades, finishing a solid second in class in the 2022 AORC E1 class point-standings, finishing a fine fourth outright and top of the 450cc class onboard his MC 450F at the Finke Desert Race, and was a member of Team Australia’s third-placed Junior World Trophy Team at the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE). In between his off-road success, McMahon also raced an array of Transmoto events and ProMX rounds.
“I’m really comfortable onboard the GASGAS now, it was my first year back on the 250 last year, so I feel like we’ve learnt a little bit more about the bike and how the set-up works. It’s been a good transition though and I feel like we will enter this year even better prepared! I’m excited to be back with GASGAS for another season, I have been with the brand for a few years now, working with the same people and am pumped for the year to come!”
Kyle Blunden (KTM Group Australia Motorsport Manager):
“When we first introduced GASGAS to the off-road market it was very exciting for the entire company. The bold, fun and exciting brand was a great addition to the segment and now entering our third year in the Australian Off-Road Championship with Korey McMahon leading the charge, we are really excited to be competing for success. Korey is an amazing young rider with a huge heart and brilliant support crew behind him. He loves nothing more than riding his GASGAS regardless of the discipline and really showcases what the brand is all about. I can’t wait to see what Korey can do throughout this year’s Australian Off-Road Championship.”
The first race of McMahon’s 2023 season is the AORC season-opener scheduled for Mendooran, NSW, between 25-26 March, where he will continue in E1 with the firm target of achieving championship success.
