BRP has long been the leading supporter of watercraft racing and is coming into the 2014 IJSBA World Finals with a special exhibition Sea-Doo #GOXTEAMGO Spark Challenge. As the manufacturer who gave birth to the performance watercraft with the introduction of the 1991 Sea-Doo XP, BRP has continuously set the benchmark in what a performance watercraft is. Today that is defined by the Sea-Doo RXP-X 260, the winningest runabout model of the past two World Championships. Where there are performance machines, there are racers and the Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty program rewards the racers who successfully compete on Sea-Doo watercraft.
The Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty racer contingency program is the industry’s premier and highest paying contingency program and acts as an, “open-sponsorship” that all riders competing in the designated classes are eligible for extra cash contingencies. The Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty is a program BRP offers to help Sea-Doo racers offset some of the financial elements of racing, a program no other OEM offers. The World Finals Bounty payout is strong for 2014 and can make winning a World Championship all the more rewarding.
In addition to the Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty program, BRP supports the majority of the north american race promoters/producers. Sponsorship funds are provided to help elevate the quality and quantity of watercraft racing events and to provide Sea-Doo owners events to feed their competitive spirit.
It has become a tradition for BRP to produce a special Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty exhibition competition by inviting the world’s elite Sea-Doo watercraft racers to compete in a special event at the World Finals. For 2014 BRP will be inviting those who have landed on podiums in premier classes during the 2014 season to compete in a special International Race Of Champions (IROC) aboard identically prepared Sea-Doo SPARK watercraft.
The field of ten will qualify Friday evening, October 10th, with the fastest five riders on the slalom course moving on to the final. On Saturday night, those final five X-TEAM riders will compete head-to-head in a five-lap moto during the IJSBA “Bounty Under the Bridge” show, under the London Bridge. Then, on Sunday October 12, Sea-Doo racers will need to complete another three-lap moto 2 on the official World Finals track. The winner of the combined motos will take home $1000 while the other four competitors will claim $100 for their efforts.

With identical Sea-Doo Spark units the racing should be ultra competitive and make for an entertaining show. This Sea-Doo Spark Challenge can also be a sneak peek to the re-sparking of the watercraft race scene as the Spark is the most affordable, lights weight, and easy to use watercraft on the market making riding, and racing, more accessible than any other new runabout on the market.
Be part of the world’s strongest performance brand, cheer on the Sea-Doo X-TEAM.
