Tim Farr and KTM Team Up to
Develop New KTM Sport ATV
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.
