Ahead of the Baja 1000 off-road race in November, Toby Price and Paul Weel upgrade their Trophy Truck from two-wheel drive to AWD.
Toby Price and Paul Weel placed 5th overall at the Baja 400 in their two-wheel drive Trophy Truck, a fantastic result after a broken axle forced early retirement during the Vegas to Reno in August. And a very promising result for a team driving a two-wheel drive Trophy Truck.
“We have shown great pace in our first couple of events and to now have this opportunity and chance to be in even equipment should help in trying to get some competitive results.” Price says.
Toby and Paul have acquired a Mason Motorsports AWD Trophy Truck from Catina Racing for the Baja 1000, and the truck is currently being prepared by TSCO Racing.

“Super excited to be able to say that Paul and I will be racing in an all new truck for the Baja 1000, we now have all 4 wheels getting traction in a Mason AWD.
“It’s the way of the future and to be able to run with the guys at the front in the same equipment, which should hopefully show soon enough in our results. AWD you can run a pace of 80% but still be doing the pace of a 2WD which is always a positive for longevity of the race truck.”
Toby Price is a legendary endurance racer, with only a few enduro titles left he has not won, one of them being the Baja 1000. We can’t wait to watch Toby and Paul race for Team Australia at the Baja 1000 between November 15th-20th. With their upgraded truck, this is certainly a team to watch at the prestigious motorsport race.
