Untitled-4Murrieta, CA – KTM Motorsports and FMF Racing, LLC have worked together with the Caselli family to set up a foundation to honor Kurt Caselli, who passed away in a tragic motorcycle accident on November 15, 2013.

“My son, Kurt, loved to learn and he loved to race,” commented Kurt’s mother, Nancy Caselli. “He was inquisitive and investigative. I am hopeful that this foundation will initiate learning, inspire others and help raise the bar for increased rider safety. Kurt would be proud, as am I, to promote this foundation’s effort to better protect current and future racers for years to come. Thank you to all for your support in his memory.”

A portion of the Caselli Foundation money will go toward a scholarship for high school seniors. Caselli’s sister, Carolyn, works as an English teacher at Corcoran High School, and she knows how important it is to encourage students to follow their dreams. “My brother Kurt had an amazing job doing what he loved. He inspired thousands of young riders to follow their dreams,” stated Carolyn. “I believe, and I know Kurt would agree, that the beauty of living your dreams is not only in the courage to dream large, but also, and more importantly, in the learning, dedication, and hard work required for turning those dreams into reality. I am proud to create this scholarship encouraging the hard work it takes to live your dreams. In this way, Kurt’s legacy will continue forward not just in the off-road community, but in the lives of all young believers.”
