North Branch, MN. – BRP’s Ski-Doo snowmobile division has finalized its racing plans for the 2012/2013 winter with emphasis on snocross plus an increased cross country and ice oval endurance presence. These will compliment mainstay efforts in hill-climb, grass drags and sprint ovals as the Ski-Doo X-Team looks to better last year’s stellar season.
Last season proved very successful for Ski-Doo snowmobiles with X-Team racer Tim Tremblay grabbing the coveted top spot in ISOC’s professional snocross series. He also took the Eagle River Snocross World Championship and he’ll be back with a laser focus on defending those championships. Cross country racing proved just as prosperous when Dusty Van Meter and Mark McKenna brought home the Iron Dog win while Steve Girard and Jean-Guy AuCoin captured another Cains Quest victory – adding to the already legendary REV-X platform reputation. Look for the X-team to continue its domination in terrain racing, both snocross and cross-country, in 2013.
“Snocross continues to be the most visible and exposed form of snowmobile racing and for good reason with the high flying, close quarters action” stated Denis Morin vice president of Engineering BRP Inc. “Because we have a philosophy of racing what we sell, and cross-country emulates trail use -at a much accelerated pace – this is also another natural development tool. Consequently we will gradually increase our involvement there, while continuing in other forms of racing too.”
But terrain racing isn’t only place the boys in yellow will be seen. The Ski-Doo X-Team will be represented in all racing disciplines with top racers and teams capable of winning at every event and supported with technical help and parts supplied from the Valcourt Race Shop.
A partial list of racers and teams is below.
