Red Bull racer and motorsport legend, Toby Price, has made the perfect start to his quest to claim his second King of the Desert title in the Car category, recording the fastest time in the Method Race Wheels Prologue at the 2022 Tatts Finke Desert Race.
Alongside navigator Jason Duncan, Price secured the top spot in tomorrow’s starting order for the 2022 Tatts Finke Desert Race with a blistering time of 04:42.9 around the 8.3-kilometre Prologue track.
The team also took home the $2,000 Outright Prologue winner prize. Price’s time was 4.2 seconds slower than the time he and navigator Joe Weining set that claimed pole position in 2021.
The 2022 Tatts Finke Desert Race will begin when the lights go out for leg one of the Car category race tomorrow at 7.30 am.
The 2022 King of the Desert for the Car category will be crowned when the field completes its return journey from Finke (Aputula) to Alice Springs on Monday.
