Toyo Tires is hoping to see its entry in this year’s Finke Desert Race take the chequered flag.
Fitted with Toyo Tires Open Country M/T tyres, Team Toyo competitors will race across several classes over 452km of gruelling Aussie outback, on the Queen’s Birthday weekend, between Alice Springs and Finke.
Leading the charge for Team Toyo is previous winner, Greg Gartner (pictured above). Greg says he’s confident of a good showing in his 12th Finke outing.
“We have picked the absolute best parts for the truck, and the Toyos get the power to the ground.
“We know now what to expect and we know we can achieve good results. Finke is about survival as much as it is competition,”
“At Finke qualifying is serious as early starting positons get you ahead of the dust. After racing SSTs on tarmac I am driving smoother, we have improved mid-corner speed and I am always working on my late braking.
“We know the Finke track and we have learned how to drive through dust.”
