Lake Elsinore, CA – The Teryx Girls had an adventurous 2015 and are ready to make 2016 even more exciting as Sara Price and Erica Sacks are committed to the Ultimate Desert Race, the 2016 King of the Hammers. This all-new challenge will test the girls physically and mentally as they race through Johnson Valley, CA, speeding through open desert and slowly tackling the technical rock crawling sections of the course. The King of the Hammers is a true test of (wo)man and machine as last year only three of the 51 entrants finished the race in 2015.
“When Erica and I formed the Teryx Girls last year, we knew we would be racing some of the toughest races in the world,” said Price. “We formed a strong bond in the Sahara Desert last year and now we are ready to take on new challenges to show everyone the strength of the Teryx Girls.”
In March of 2015 the Teryx Girls, with the support of Kawasaki, made history in their Kawasaki Teryx side-by-side by finishing the 25th Annual Rallye Aicha des Gazelles. Price and Sacks are the first American UTV team to compete in the what's known to be the toughest all female motosports event on the planet.
“This past year has been amazing for both of us,” said Sacks. “Sara and I are excited to face new challenges and we can’t wait for The King of the Hammers. We know it is going to be a hard race to finish, but we are determined to get a good finish.”
This year IMG Motorsports will build a 2016 Kawasaki Teryx for the King Of the Hammers, leaving a large percentage of stock parts on the race side-by-side due to the proven strength and performance of the Kawasaki Teryx. Fans can watch the Teryx Girls race live on Wednesday, Feb. 3 at www.ultra4racing.com/live.
