Motorex KTM Off Road Racing has also confirmed an assault in the Hattah and Finke Desert Races.
“It’s a very exciting lineup for us for 2014,” Williscroft said. “Toby’s accident was a big setback for him and the team, but he’s back and healthy and we hope he can surpass his 2013 peak and prove the time away has only increased his motivation and love of the sport even more.
“Matt, well everyone knows how talented he is, he can do anything. It’s worked out really well that he’s signed with the Farioli KTM team in Europe and we’re going to have him back for a number of AORC events, the Four-Day and maybe Hattah.
“Peter has been around a few years now and he’s very talented and in my eyes has never really been given the opportunity to prove just how talented.
“The new Enduro-X series is one of our points of focus this year, and he’s great in that discipline as well as in the faster races like Hattah. With more guidance and support from the team we hope he will really shine this year.”
The team’s first national outing of 2014 will come on 2 February at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway.
