    We recently did a little searching around the United States Patent and Trademark Office website and found an interesting filing from Arctic Cat for the name ALTERRA (click here to see the filing).

    Arctic Cat has not yet responded to our request for more information, but that doesn’t mean we can’t play one of our favorite games – Rampant Speculation!

      Arctic Cat Wildcat Racers WORCS

      The Team Arctic/D&P Performance race team consisting of Karl Munford, Dean Bulloch and Stacey Pike put together a very successful weekend at WORCS Round 6 in Cedar City, Utah, with a win in the 700 Production class and two more podium spots in 900 Production.

      Fresh off a 2nd place King of the Hammers podium in the Pro UTV Class, the D&P Performance team built three Wildcat Sport Limited’s in three days to compete in Round 6 of the WORCS series. The fruit of their labor was nothing but success as Karl Munford won the 700 Production Class while Stacey Pike and Dean Bulloch finished 2nd and 3rd respectively in 900 Production.

          Dean Bulloch King of the Hammers

          Team Arctic/D&P Performance race team consisting of Dean Bulloch and Karl Munford raced their stock 2015 Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport to a second-place finish in the Pro UTV class at the King of the Hammers in Johnson Valley, Calif.

          The race started with 34 UTVs, and after 120 miles of flying through the sand-washed desert, charging up rock-laden hills and crawling through boulder-strewn canyons, only two of the UTVs finished in the allotted time.

            Top 10 ATVs and UTVs of 2014 Feature

            The world of off road has been turned on its head over the past 12 months. When choosing our 10 favorite ATVs and UTVs of 2014, we started with a list of 50 new and revised models and we hear rumors of more on the way almost weekly.

            Getting on the gas with several marketing moves, the sleeping giant, Honda, has been very active. This gives us proof that the industry is beginning to wake up even more. We have seen an inflating trend in the working side of the industry as many companies start to focus on the bread and butter of what fills the bank account for them.

            Hunting is a huge part of the Side-by-Side industry. Without hunters, ranchers, active farmers or land maintenance workers, we would not be seeing the evolution to the Utility side of this industry. In 2014, Yamaha brought out the Viking VI while rethinking and redesigning the way three people fill the front and back stretch of a working ride. And there are many more examples of manufacturers finding ways to make these machines better and more useful.

            That same forward thinking is perhaps even more evident in the Sport segment. The fight for power and suspension travel supremacy continues. Consumers want to go faster and jump Mount Rushmore with little more than a tickle on the seat bottom upon landing. Using shock packages that are made for what seems to be full size trucks, companies like FOX, Elka and Walker Evans have seen a spike in sales not only to consumers but also to manufacturers who use their equipment on specific models.

            As we look ahead to 2015, we are seeing an industry that is alive and well. This past year has been incredible for ATV and UTV fans. Now we’ll take a look at our 10 favorite machines unveiled in 2014.
