RAM and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing have renewed their partnership for another year, following a successful 2022 season. The American brand will continue to sponsor the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team in three different competitions: the FIM Motocross World Championship, the FIM Enduro World Championship, and the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship.
As part of the partnership, four RAM 1500 trucks will be at the disposal of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teams for travel during the season’s races, including two RAM 1500 TRX models, a RAM 1500 Rebel, and a RAM Laramie. The RAM trucks will also be showcased at some events throughout the season. The RAM logo will feature on the riders’ motorcycles and racing jerseys in the aforementioned categories, as well as on all of KTM’s social media channels.
Domenico Gostoli, Head of RAM & Dodge Brands Enlarged Europe, expressed his pride in the renewed partnership, saying, “We are excited to have shared the successes of KTM last year and we are ready to experience together another season of great satisfaction with such a strong Brand and Team.”
Robert Jonas, KTM Head of Motorsports Offroad, echoed the sentiment, saying, “Continuing our partnership with RAM through 2023 really elevates our racing program and allows the riders to travel in comfort. RAM and its TRX truck fits our READY TO RACE approach perfectly and, just like Red Bull KTM, RAM has a long history in performance and success.”
The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team has added some new faces to their roster for the 2023 season. The team will be counting on the talents of Andrea Adamo, Sacha Coenen, and Liam Everts, who each compete on a KTM 250 SX-F. Jeffrey Herlings, who is in his seventh year in the category, remains a mainstay in the team and will be riding the KTM 450 SX-F. Meanwhile, Josep Garcia will ride the KTM 250 EXC-F, and Manuel Lettenbichler will be on the KTM 300 EXC TPI in the Enduro range.
Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director, expressed his enthusiasm for the continued partnership, saying, “I think bringing a brand like RAM into racing paddocks is hugely beneficial for all involved as it will elevate the paddock and create a lot of interest for both Red Bull KTM, and for RAM.”
