The KTM Ultimate Race is Back

1 year ago | Words: KTM | Photos: KTM

How would you like to win an all-expenses paid trip to Morocco and a fully-supported ride on a factory-prepped KTM 790 Adventure R to race an exclusive class at the Merzouga Rally 2020? Well, the KTM Ultimate Race is back for 2020 and the Australia Qualification event will be held at the Transmoto 8-Hour Stroud, October 18-19, 2019.
With six KTM Adventure Rallye events now taking place all over the world, the KTM Ultimate Race was introduced in 2019 to bring together the global KTM adventure communities.


Two lucky riders from each country that host a Rallye will again get the chance to qualify and take part in the KTM Ultimate Race at the 2020 Merzouga Rally in Morocco.  The fully supported ride for each person includes flights, accommodation, entry fees, as well as a KTM 790 Adventure R to race on, with a full race service.
Competitors will also be given the fantastic opportunity to be coached by some of the world’s finest and fastest offroad racers and to be treated like Factory supported riders during the trip in which they will negotiate some of the most epic terrain in rally racing.
So how do you qualify for this once-in-a-lifetime experience?
There will be a stand-alone qualification event to find the two Australian riders and who better to host this event than the crew that brings you some of the most unique and entertaining racing in Australia: Transmoto!

Held in conjunction with the final Transmoto Enduro Event of the year – the 2019 Transmoto 8-Hour at Stroud – the KTM Ultimate Race Qualifications will be held on Friday and Saturday before the 8-Hour, with plenty of chance for spectators to watch the challenges on Saturday.

Certain requirements must be met for those wishing to participate in the Qualifications, as set across all countries. Riders must compete on a twin-cylinder KTM motorcycle (790, 950, 990, 1090, 1190, 1290) that they own (the bike cannot be borrowed or rented) and is road registered.
They must hold a current MA racing license. One-Day licenses can be purchased on the day, however, the two qualification winners must have a valid MA license to participate in Merzouga.  Riders can’t have raced professionally or participated in the Dakar Rally in the past 10 years. And they must have a GPS unit capable of following GPX tracks and an Instagram account.

The Qualification challenges will be tough, as the terrain in Morocco will be a serious task, therefore we are not holding back during this Qualification.

Entries for the Qualification are very limited and open on Wednesday, September 11 at 9.00am AEST.  Details on the Qualification challenges and the link to enter once registrations open can be found here: www.ridektm.com.au/ktm-ultimaterace-2020
