In a thrilling and unprecedented collaboration, Australian motorsport stars Toby Price and Paul Weel are teaming up with off-road racing legend Larry Roeseler to form a formidable three-man team for the upcoming Baja 1000.
This exciting venture is proudly sponsored by Quad Lock and Baja Vida, two industry-leading companies committed to pushing the limits of performance and endurance in the world of off-road racing.
The Baja 1000, one of the most iconic off-road races on the planet, will take place on November 16-18, and as a peninsula run, the race will stretch 1310 miles (2108 kilometers).
The race, known for its treacherous terrain, unpredictable conditions, and breathtaking scenery, provides the ultimate challenge for competitors.
Team Australia’s Toby Price, two-time Dakar Rally Winner, & Paul Weel, ex-V8 Supercars & Stadium Super Truck Driver have attempted the Baja 1000 in 2022, but following a freak failure saw Weel’s #46 Trophy Truck burn to the ground.
The duo will now be joined by the legendary Larry Roeseler, a name synonymous with Baja 1000 glory. Roeseler's unmatched experience and six overall Baja 1000 victories make him an invaluable addition to the team, offering unrivaled expertise in conquering the grueling Baja terrain.
As the major sponsors, Quad Lock and Baja Vida will provide crucial support, ensuring that Price, Weel, and Roeseler have the equipment and resources needed to tackle the Baja 1000's challenging course.
Dominic Storey, Partnerships Manager at Quad Lock, is excited to see Australia’s Price & Weel partner with Baja legend Roeseler for the 1000.
“We are excited to see the Team Australia guys join forces with Baja Vida and Larry for the Baja 1000. With such an event being a test of both resources and endurance, this will hopefully bring the team the results they deserve. Our whole Quad Lock team is wishing Toby, Paul & Larry the best of luck!"
Chris Vorhies, Brand Activation Director at Baja Vida, is looking forward to seeing their brand Ambassador partner with Team Australia for the massive race.
“We are excited and honored to have the opportunity to race with Paul and Toby, we (the Baja Vida team) believe in this effort and feel as though we have a great opportunity to bring home a championship. Larry believes in teaming with another Moto rider and who better than Toby Price? To have the racing talent that Paul brings behind the wheel with the vast knowledge of Larry in Baja, we feel we have a recipe for victory.”
The excitement surrounding this unique trio of racers, combined with the support of Quad Lock and Baja Vida, promises to make the 2023 Baja 1000 an unforgettable event.
