Polaris returns for cross country bid
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.
