BRP’s Sea-Doo watercraft have been selected to ensure the safety of participants during Red Bull Storm Chase 2012 windsurfing events around the world.
Red Bull Storm Chase brings together ten of the world’s best windsurfers to compete in what promises to be the roughest conditions on the planet. Three adrenaline-fuelled rounds will be held between now and November in any of seven stormy locations across Europe, Asia Pacific and North America.
“This partnership with Red Bull is an exciting opportunity for BRP, enabling us to showcase Sea-Doo watercraft and its acclaimed Intelligent Brake & Reverse technology (iBR) – the only braking technology in the industry.” said Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager of BRP’s International division.
BRP and Red Bull have a shared passion for community, fun and adventure and a common quest to make good days great. Marking the first worldwide collaboration between the two companies, BRP is supplying Sea-Doo watercraft at the three Red Bull events, leveraging the global reach of its dealer and distribution network.
“We are pleased that BRP has come on board as an official partner at this year’s Red Bull Storm Chase. It is critical that we have the right processes and support in place when confronted with some of the toughest weather conditions around to ensure the contest remains under control,” said Klaas Voget, Sports Director for Red Bull Storm Chase 2012. “With BRP’s Sea-Doo PWC on hand, we are prepared for some huge waves.”
“BRP’s Sea-Doo watercraft have been recognized and used by worldwide organizations such as the French Red Cross, the US Cost Guard, the Australian water police authorities and Surf life saving as they facilitate and improve the safety of their rescue operations,” added Yves Leduc, vice-president and general manager, BRP North American division.
