I was commissioned by Toby Price Motorsport to document his 2019 Finke Desert race campaign. Leaving the bike at home this year, Toby decided to focus on winning the Trophy truck category following his DNF in 2018 after mechanical failure on day 2.
The crew arrived hungrier than ever for the win, with the car meticulously prepared and ready to race. Toby qualified first and lead a commanding lead of over 9 minutes after finishing the first day of racing.
The crew camped overnight and prepared the truck in the harsh conditions of the desert for the return race back on day 2.
Toby maintained his commanding lead as the race began on day 2 and the writing was on the wall for Toby’s first Trophy Truck win at The Finke. Disaster struck halfway through the race when Toby pulled off to the side of the track, again suffering a mechanical issue which took him out of the race for 2019. A devastated Toby returned back to base.
The Following series follows his race campaign.
