Domenico Gostoli, Head of RAM & Dodge Brands Enlarged Europe: “The common values at the core of this relationship made it natural to continue this fantastic adventure side by side: after two years lived at the highest level and full of success, we are thrilled to renew the partnership with such a strong brand and team. Our communities are bound together by a strong passion and a deep emotional component, always striving for performance to overcome limits. We are ready for another great season together!”

We have seen the reaction of the fans to having a global brand like RAM so closely associated with the team. There is a lot of curiosity and some ‘wow’ factor around the trucks, and this is only part of the reason why we are proud to keep working together for a third year.”

Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director: “It almost goes without saying that we are really happy to have RAM onboard with us again. It is a brand and a product that now has a strong link with our MXGP program and also the sport itself. I think it says a lot for the profile of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing that we are the main partner for RAM in the paddock and we’ll try to put that logo on top of the podium as much as possible for the rest of the season.”
