This should be any interesting year. KTM is certainly putting a hell of a team together. Wonder what this means for Quinn and his next Dakar attempt. Seems like an awesome guy, and one of my favourite riders. Posted by Quinn Cody on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 KTM Motorsports proudly named its four-member 2012 Baja Racing Team: Kurt Caselli, Ivan Ramirez, Mike Brown and Quinn Cody. KTM returned to Baja racing two seasons ago with support from outside sponsor Bonanza Plumbing, and in 2012, KTM will remain linked to Bonanza Plumbing but is investing resources to put forth a true factory effort in the Baja race series, hoping to capture the victory at the premier Baja event: the Baja 1000. As the KTM teams most experienced Baja team member, Quinn Cody has collected 4 Baja 1000 titles and 2 Baja 500 titles. He is also a former Dakar Rally Rookie of the Year and was a member of KTMs Baja effort the last year the team competed at the factory level. I could not be more excited to be a part of KTMs new Baja program. With 2012 being one of the most competitive years in Baja racing history, I am looking forward to applying my experience to the team to help put KTM on the top of the podium, stated Cody. The team will compete aboard KTMs 2012 450 SX-F. The dual-overhead cam, carbureted engine has been very successful in Dakar Rally racing. Team Manager, Antti Kallonen, says We are very fortunate to receive support from the KTM Factory in Austria. The team will receive the same engine as the Dakar team runs and we feel that motor is perfectly designed for the challenging conditions of Baja racing.
