BRP will provide an unmatched level of race support in North America for those competing on modern Sea-Doo watercraft through the 2015 Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty racer contingency program and Sea-Doo X-TEAM event support program.
BRP has set the benchmark in watercraft runabout racing over the past 20-plus years, with an unprecedented run of Pro World Championships since the introduction of the Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 with Ergolock and T3 hull. The 2015 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 in the various disciplines of watercraft racing in North America. BRP also ensures there are more race events across North America through the Sea-Doo Promoter support program.
BRP’s Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty is open to ALL racers competing on modern Sea-Doo models in designated classes. The Sea-Doo X-TEAM contingency is essentially an, “open-sponsorship” that excludes no one, except those competing on other brands. In addition to the glory that comes with winning on Sea-Doo watercraft, comes the opportunity for extra prize money. The Sea-Doo events team will also be bringing the Sea-Doo X-TEAM Pro Pit Lounge to various race events where friends and family of Sea-Doo racers can enjoy special BRP hospitality and a VIP experience.
The Sea-Doo X-TEAM Event Support program provides event promoters sponsorship to help them produce more, high-quality, fun events. BRP works with promoters to ensure Sea-Doo performance enthusiasts have a place to ride and compete in an organized manner, providing another fun aspect of owning a Sea-Doo watercraft.
“BRP markets the best in performance watercraft with the Sea-Doo X models and supports those winning races on them with the strongest contingency program in the industry, the Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty,” says Tim McKercher, of Sea-Doo watercraft competition management. “BRP takes the lead in supporting the sport by ensuring watercraft owners have more, good events to participate in with the Sea-Doo X-TEAM event support program helping promoters produce more and higher quality events.
BRP does more for the sport of watercraft racing than any other company.
For 2015, Sea-Doo X-TEAM program support begins at the 11th annual Mark Hahn Memorial 300 endurance race taking place in Lake Havasu, Arizona February 28th.
