SxS Contingency Program Announced
Industry-Leading $1.79 Million
Program Has Increased 2012 Series & Class
Valcourt, Québec (12/22/2011)
- BRP will provide nearly US $1.8 million to support
its industry-leading Can-Am ATV and Side-By-Side
Racing Contingency Program for the 2012 racing season.
BRP has added more regional racing series as well
as improved the contingency program for select Can-Am
ATV and all Can-Am Commander side-by-side vehicle
racers for 2012. Racers who compete on Can-Am ATVs
and side-by-side vehicles in both Canada and the
United States are eligible for a cash payout through
the program for the upcoming racing season.

“We remain dedicated in our support of
both professional and amateur Can-Am ATV and side-by-side
vehicle racers,” said Denis Morin, vice-president,
Product Development & Racing at BRP. “Our
class-leading contingency program is essential
for rewarding those racers who choose to compete
on our products and be part of the Can-Am family.
Racing is deeply rooted in our heritage and serves
as an integral resource for furthering product
development and innovation.”
Participating racers who compete in an approved
racing series aboard the Can-Am DS 450, Can-Am
Outlander or Can-Am Renegade lines of ATVs and
the Can-Am Commander line of side-by-side vehicles
can be eligible for the cash payout. Racers, who
meet the terms of the contingency program, will
be awarded cash payouts in the amount earned based
on a racer’s overall finish at a qualifying
event and be mailed directly to the participant
or the legal guardian. Additional contingency
will also be awarded to racers who secure a class
championship at the end of the season.
For 2012, the revised Can-Am 4x4 Contingency
Program includes more models and rebates for eligible
participants. The program starts immediately and
includes all new or unused 2010, 2011 and 2012
Can-Am Outlander and Renegade ATVs, and all 2011
and 2012 new or unused Can-Am Commander side-by-side
vehicles. Benefits of the program include a $1000
factory discount on all eligible ATV models and
a $1500 factory discount on all eligible side-by-sides.
Racers can qualify for model rebates by purchasing
a qualifying ATV or SxS, register with an authorized
Can-Am dealer and then compete in their local
series or a nationally recognized racing circuit.
However, the number of vehicles eligible for the
program is limited and once BRP reaches that number,
the program will end.
Amateur racers who compete aboard the Can-Am
DS 450 EFI ATV will also continue to have unprecedented
access to factory racing support with the new
Can-Am X-Team DS 450 Racer Support Program and
more racing series to choose from in 2012. Once
the amateur racer applies with any authorized
Can-Am dealer and is approved, he or she can receive
factory support no matter the race series and
no matter the class.
All approved Can-Am X-Team DS 450 racers will
receive a one-year Can-Am X-Team membership card
and a unique racer ID, which also grants them
access to a $2,000 racer discount on any new or
unused DS 450. Can-Am X-Team racing members will
also receive a FREE Can-Am X-Team / Motoworks
Stage 1 Racing Kit (up to a $1,000 value). This
factory-developed racing kit includes a racing
Engine Control Module, Motoworks SR4 aluminum
slip-on silencer and other race-proven items.
The Stage 1 Racing Kit increases the DS 450 ATV’s
crank horsepower to 50 hp – an improvement
of 11 percent over stock – and improves
