Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings kicked off the European leg of the 2023 MXGP Championship in style with a victory at the Riola Sardo circuit in Sardinia. Herlings, riding a KTM 450 SX-F, secured his 100th Grand Prix win and helped his team maintain its strong start to the season.
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing has opted to keep Herlings as its mainstay for this season, with the Dutchman joined by promising young riders Andrea Adamo, Sacha Coenen, and Liam Everts, all competing on KTM 250 SX-F bikes. The team is hoping that this mix of experience and youth will help them to challenge for titles this season.
The MXGP Championship has also welcomed a new official partner for the 2023 season, with RAM becoming an integral part of the event. RAM vehicles will be present at all stages of the championship, with the brand’s sporty and gritty soul being a perfect fit for the fast-paced and adrenaline-fueled world of motocross.
In addition to vehicle placement around the paddock and track, RAM is the main sponsor of the revamped qualifying sessions, known as the RAM Qualifying Races. The American Brand will be prominently featured in all structural and media elements related to the organization of individual events.
RAM’s partnership with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing is a testament to its commitment to sportiness and grit, with four RAM vehicles at the team’s disposal during the season’s races. The Ram 1500 TRX, the brand’s flagship model, leads the pack, along with a Ram 1500 Laramie Night Edition, a Ram 1500 Rebel, and a Ram 1500 REV, the brand’s first 100% electric pickup truck.
The MXGP Championship continues on Saturday, April 8th and Monday, April 10th, with the Swiss GP taking place on a completely renewed circuit in Frauenfeld. With RAM and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing at the forefront, the 2023 season promises to be a thrilling one for motocross fans.
