Valcourt, QC, CANADA– March, 11, 2014 – BRP continues to lead the watercraft industry in race support in North America through the supercharged, 2014 Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty racer contingency program and Sea-Doo Race Promoter support program.
BRP has dominated watercraft runabout racing over the past several years, reaching all time highs following the introduction of the Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 with Ergolock and T3 hull. Sea-Doo X-TEAM riders filled 27 out of 33 available podium positions and 10 of 11 championships at the 2013 IJSBA World Championships for the most dominant World Finals performance of any sit-down watercraft since the introduction of the 1995 Sea-Doo XP model. Matching the industry leading on-water effort is equally strong off-water Sea-Doo support programs. The 2014 Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty program provides more contingency money than any other program in the industry and makes it available to all Sea-Doo riders competing on modern Sea-Doo watercraft. BRP also ensures there are more race events across North America for the racers through the Sea-Doo Promoter support program.
The supercharged 2014 Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty program receives a boost with added class payouts for the new Sea-Doo Spark model eligible classes and boosted US National Tour and World Finals championship bonuses in the Pro Open and Pro Stock classes. BRP’s Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty is open to ALL racers competing on modern Sea-Doo models in designated classes. The Sea-Doo contingency is essentially an, “open-sponsorship” that excludes no one, except those competing on watercraft other than Sea-Doo. In addition to the glory that comes with winning on Sea-Doo watercraft, comes the opportunity for extra prize money.
The Sea-Doo Promoter Support program provides event promoters sponsorship to help them produce more, high-quality, fun events. BRP works with the promoters to ensure Sea-Doo owners have a place to ride and compete in an organized manner, providing another fun aspect of owning a Sea-Doo watercraft.
“BRP supports the Sea-Doo racing community with the most dominant closed course watercraft in the RXP-X 260 and supports those winners with the strongest contingency program, the Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty,” says Tim McKercher, of Sea-Doo watercraft competition management.
in compliment, “BRP is taking the lead in ensuring watercraft owners have more, good events to feed their competitive spirit with the Sea-Doo Promoter support program that helps these promoters put on more and higher quality events” says Adrien de Alexandris marketing manager for Sea-Doo watercraft.
BRP does more for the sport of watercraft racing than any other company.
For 2014 this support begins at the first round of the 2014 P1 AQUA X US tour in Daytona Beach, FL, April 26-27, 2014.
The Sea-Doo Promoter Support program will include sponsorship of the following North American watercraft racing series:
