BRP’s Can-Am ATV and Side-by-Side racers earned a record number of wins and championships across North America in 2014. Racers secured more than 16 total championships, including the first GNCC XC1 Modified (side-by-side) class and SCORE International Class 19 Pro Side-by-Side championship.

Team member Kyle Chaney earned BRP its first GNCC XC1 Modified (Side-by-Side) class title behind the wheel of his Can-Am Maverick 1000R. Chaney recorded three consecutive event overall wins and had four total podiums in six rounds of racing.

“It was a great year winning the GNCC XC1 overall championship. I’m proud to be a part of such a historic season,” says Chaney. “The Can-Am Maverick vehicle comes off the showroom floor pretty much ready to race, and the new Maverick X ds Turbo model with the first factory-installed turbocharger will change the game.”

BRP’s Can-Am racing team captured numerous ATV and Side-by-Side championships across America, like the inaugural GNCC 4×4 Pro class, its first GNCC XC2 Limited Side-by-Side crown and around a dozen more titles in respected mud, motocross and endurance racing circuits.

“The racing community chooses the Can-Am brand because our vehicles offer industry-leading performance and unmatched dynamics. Our historic season gives us momentum for the upcoming season and undoubtedly reinforces our message that the ride says it all,” says Philippe Normand, director of global marketing for Can-Am off-road.
