Amherst, OH - In line with continued testing and development of the KTM Sport ATV, Tim Farr will race the Snowshoe GNCC June 23-24, 2007. The Moose Snowshoe GNCC marks Round 8 of the 2007 GNCC Series.
Farr’s last GNCC race occurred a decade ago back in 1997. The Snowshoe GNCC will mark the first GNCC event for the KTM Sport ATV. Farr claims his confidence is high and he is excited to return to the GNCC Series with a brand new product and purpose for racing. Through the duration of his career he has campaigned nearly every type of ATV racing including, Baja, Motocross, Extreme Dirt Track and GNCC -- earning 11 pro championship titles.
Farr will race the KTM 450XC Sport ATV in the Pro Am class. This is the same model with which Farr won the Unlimited class at the opening round of the Extreme Dirt Track Series earlier this month in Greenbrier, AR. The dirt track course provided the team with a deeper insight in regards to how the ATV handles during high speed, however, the GNCC course will serve as a much rougher testing ground. “This race is an opportunity to test the new KTM ATV XC in extreme conditions.” Farr continues, “The challenging layout and rocky course will allow us the opportunity to test the ATV from all angles.”
KTM’s Director of Racing Kurt Nicoll stated, “We are thrilled with how Tim and the KTM Sport ATV have preformed so far and look forward to another great testing opportunity and, of course, a strong finish at the Snowshoe GNCC.”
