After a successful 2013 racing campaign saw Can-Am racers earn class championships with both ATVs and Side-by-Sides, BRP has decided to add to its racing team for 2014 and expand the Can-Am X-Team program with additional Side-by-Side vehicle support.
“We are coming off a very successful inaugural season with the Can-Am Maverick 1000R Side-by-Side vehicle and one in which we captured numerous ATV championships in different racing disciplines. From motocross to hare scrambles to endurance riders, our talented team is loaded with passionate racers who are determined to put their Can-Am vehicles in the winner’s circle,” says Jeff Leclerc, racing project leader, Can-Am. “The team will include factory-supported racers for competitive series in both the U.S. and Canada”
Tim Farr raced his Can-Am Maverick 1000R X rs to victory at the season-ending AMSOIL Ironman GNCC in Crawfordsville, Ind.
This was the first victory of the season for Farr and his wife / co-pilot Julie, but the second overall win for the JB Racing / Can-Am team. Farr, starting from row three, held the lead after the first lap and rode a steady race to record the victory. He won by more than 40 seconds over second place and finished the year in sixth place overall in the XC1 UTV class. The NC Powersports / Performance East / Can-Am teams of Stuart Weeks and Devon Steedley also recorded top 10 XC1 class finishes in Indiana.
