BRP makes bigger commitment to racing programs
BRP is expanding its race contingency program in 2010 to include more cash and more national and regional series in North America, the manufacturer said in a press release.
BRP will inject $1.6 million into its Can-Am X Team ATV Contingency Program.
“Enhanced racer support from the pro racer to the amateur is our goal with this program,” says Denis Morin, vice president of product development and racing at BRP. “As racing is key to improving all of our products at BRP, it is nice to be able to expand our contingency program to reward those who have committed to continuing Can-Am success on the race track.”
In North America, BRP is committing to pay out contingency cash in 19 race series, including the Can-Am Grand National Cross Country series (13 classes), the ITP/Moose Racing AMA ATV Motocross Championship (17 classes) and the SCORE International Baja 1000.

BRP recalls about 2,400 Can-Am ATVs
In cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), BRP voluntarily recalled about 2,400 MY 2010 Can-Am Outlander and Renegade ATVs, according to the CPSC.
The vehicles were recalled because the dynamic power steering can fail, resulting in the sudden loss of steering control, reported the CPSC. The firm has received one incident report with no injury.
