Toby Price has won his 8th title at the Finke Desert Race, his 2nd win in the car category, and has finished in record time.
Price and navigator Jason Duncan were already on record pace on the outbound leg to Aputula in his Mitsubishi Triton Trophy Truck and got back to Alice Springs in an aggregate time of 3:21:46.2s.
Price is now an eight-time King of the Desert in total, and still the only competitor to have achieved victory on both two wheels and four, the latter on six occasions.
“We’re stoked and it was a good run back. We didn’t push, we didn’t do anything crazy, I just can’t thank my crew enough for all their efforts. We had a really good run yesterday, and the hardest part is that you don’t know what’s going on behind you. You push really hard, and the boys have done a great job with the truck… everything has turned out really good.”
