Amherst, OH – Eleven-time ATV National Champion, Tim Farr, has teamed-up with KTM to assist in the development and testing of the new KTM Sport ATV.
Farr’s race career started early at the young age of eight years old. Since that time Farr has racked up 11 Pro ATV National Championships, two Extreme Dirt Track Series Championships, and a SCORE Baja 1000 Open ATV title. In addition to his last ATVA Extreme Dirt Track Pro Championship in 2006 he also won the ATVA Athlete of the Year Award.
“We are absolutely ecstatic to have such a well decorated athlete join our team. Farr will be an extreme asset to the KTM team and very instrumental to the development of the KTM Sport ATV.” said KTM’s Director of Racing Kurt Nicoll.
Farr’s education and race experience make him a perfect candidate to help in the development of the new KTM race machine. Farr comes to KTM with an engineering background, over 11 years of competitive racing under his belt, and many seasons working with the Japanese manufactures on ATV related R&D projects. Farr said he felt comfortable moving to KTM because they wanted to build a competitive ATV, an ATV built specifically with the racer in mind, an ATV that he could relate to.
Farr stated, “The KTM Sport ATV is a great product. It comes with everything you need. The handlebars, brakes and suspension work great. You don’t have to sink a whole bunch of money into this quad to make it ready to go, it truly comes “Ready to Race.”
In addition to on-going, regular scheduled tests, Farr will also be competing in select ATVA series events, including GNCC and Extreme Dirt Track Series. His first event will be round one of the ATVA Extreme Dirt Track Series on June 9-10, 2007 in Greenbrier, AR.
