“2020 was an incredible year for Can-Am Off-Road racing,” said Bernard Guy, Senior Vice President of Global Product Strategy at BRP. “The results speak for themselves. And much like automotive manufacturers involved with F1 or NASCAR, racing is a key marker for our product innovation. We observe and test vehicle dynamics and performance in the harshest of conditions, and then we take that same winning formula and apply it to our entire lineup, whether it’s used on the track, for work, or out with friends and family.”
This year, production-based UTV Turbo race categories were dominated by the Can-Am Maverick X3 and its roster of professional and amateur racers. From the renowned Dakar Rally in January to the SCORE Pro UTV Championship in December, and oh-so-many in between, the Can-Am Maverick X3 brought a wide and diverse group of riders into the winner’s circle, making history along the way.
· Casey Currie and co-driver Sean Berriman became the first Americans to win the Dakar Rally on four wheels. They covered a grueling 7,500+ km over 12 days, showcasing the incredible performance, toughness, and reliability of the Maverick X3 along the way.
· Hunter Miller won the Ultra4 King of the Hammers, leading a podium sweep for the Maverick X3 in a race dubbed “the toughest one-day off-road race on the planet” – which isn’t an exaggeration
· Phil Blurton won the season-long Best in the Desert Championship
· Matt Burroughs won the season-long SCORE Championship
· Corry Weller won the season-long Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series
· Toby Price won the Goondiwindi 400, a grueling 400 km race in Australia
· Denisio Casarini Filho and Ivo Renato Mayer won the Rally dos Sertões in Brazil
To compete (and win) against world-class competition, Can-Am racers start exactly where a regular rider does: with a stock Can-Am Maverick X3.
