Toby Price Becomes King of the desert



Yuasa Batteries affiliate Toby Price has won the 2021 Finke Desert in the car category, officially becoming the first person win both bike and car category and cemented his title of “King of the Desert”. 

The Finke Desert Race is one of Australia’s toughest off road motorsports competitions, where over two days competitors must travel 226kms from Alice Springs to the remote community of Finke, and then back to Alice Springs on the return leg.

With six wins already under his belt in the bike division, Price, alongside navigators Mark Dutton and Joe Weining, were determined to complete their first car division race after previous years were mired by technical issues.

The team was able to cross the finish line in his new Mitsubishi Triton Truck in record breaking time, beating his own personal best time in the buggy category by more than five minutes.
