Po­laris re­turns for cross coun­try bid

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Po­laris In­dus­tries will com­pete in this year’s Bri­tish Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onship with its Po­laris RZR.

The fac­tory-backed team de­buted its car last year and con­tested sev­eral events in re­gional cham­pi­onships in prepa­ra­tion for its BCCC chal­lenge. The squad will go up against Yamaha’s works-backed YXZ1000R, en­tered by EX-BTCC team Thor­ney Mo­tor­sport.

Driver Richard Coleby said: “Af­ter a suc­cess­ful de­vel­op­ment sea­son in 2015, the orig­i­nal fac­tory-backed UTV team is look­ing for­ward to a com­pet­i­tive sea­son this year.

“The en­try co­in­cides well with the in­tro­duc­tion of the new Po­laris RZR Turbo, the most pow­er­ful man­u­fac­tur­erpro­duced UTV on the mar­ket.

“Af­ter a steep learn­ing curve in 2015 we feel ready to take the step up to the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship this year. We can’t wait for the sea­son to start.” ● The BCCC sea­son will get un­der­way on April 9/10 at My­herin.
