BRP Continues Can-Am Amateur Racer Support Program

BRP Continues Can-Am Amateur Racer Support Program, Québec, March 3, 2015 – BRP will continue its Can-Am Amateur Racer Support program for 2015. Owners with eligible, 2012 or newer, Can-Am ATV or side-by-side vehicles may apply for the program. The amateur support program compliments BRP’s industry-leading Can-Am X-Team ATV and Side-By-Side Racing contingency program.

“BRP realizes the level of commitment required to compete for off-road racing championships. By offering our Can-Am Amateur Racer Support and having devoted nearly a million dollars to the Can-Am X-Team contingency program, we can essentially reward Can-Am racers for their efforts,” said Jeff Leclerc, Racing Project Leader, Can-Am. “The support program allows performance enthusiasts in North America to compete with certain designated Can-Am vehicles, both ATVs and side-by-side vehicles, at select, authorizes events. The bottom line is, win or lose, our programs exist to support racers who support the Can-Am brand.”

Amateur racing participants must purchase a qualifying new or unused ATV or side-by-side vehicle and register with an authorized Can-Am dealer. The list of ATVs include 2014 and newer DS 450 and 2012 and newer Renegade and select Outlander (see rules) models. For side-by-side vehicles, they can purchase a 2012 or newer Can-Am Maverick or 2012 or newer Commander. Once approved for the program, a $1,000 rebate is applied for ATVs and a $1,500 rebate for side-by-side vehicles. However, eligible vehicle numbers are limited and the program will conclude once BRP reaches that number.

Qualified racers can receive cash payouts in the amount earned based on their qualifying finishes. Payments are mailed directly to the participant or legal guardian. Upon the conclusion of the 2015 season, BRP will also award contingency payouts for overall championships earned.

Contingency cash is paid out in numerous U.S. national and regional racing series. Those series include the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) series, World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS), Best In The Desert (BITD), SCORE International, Mud Nationals, Championship Mud Racing, 12 Hours of La Tuque and many more. The Can-Am X-Team Racing Contingency Program will be announced in a separate release.
