“I am really happy to come home to the orange family. I had a great time at ASO and worked hard to help keeping the Rally at the highest level of motorcycle racing. Now a new chapter started and I cannot wait to tackle my new business challenges with all the great people at KTM Spain and under the guidance of Cesar, who I have always admired as a sportsman as well as a business man”, said Marc Coma.
