KTM Sportmotorcycle AG and KTM Racing are appealing to everyone throughout the racing community who may have shared special moments with Kurt Caselli to share them with us. Please send us your stories, anecdotes, tributes and photos to honor Kurt’s memory. He tragically lost his life in a racing accident while competing in the recent SCORE Baja 1000.
This compendium of memories of Kurt is for the Caselli family and it is hoped that the collection will be a worthy tribute to someone very special who will be very sadly missed throughout the international racing community. Kurt was an accomplished off-road and desert rider, admired and respected in racing circles for his skill, natural talent and exemplary sportsmanship far beyond the borders of his home country. He was not only one of the most popular figures on the KTM Team but also a great role model for young riders and fans. He is and will always be remembered as a champion on the bike, and in life.
Both the Caselli family and KTM will appreciate receiving contributions to honor Kurt’s life, which can be submitted up to January 30, 2013 to the following addresses:

Betriebsgebeit Süd, Stallhofnerstrasse 38,
