Can-Am Completed Record-Breaking Racing Year in 2020

Valcourt, Quebec, Canada, December 17, 2020 – BRP (TSX: DOO; NASDAQ: DOOO) saw  Can-Am Off-Road racers set new standards for side-by-side vehicle performance this year. And  as 2020 approaches the finish line, the company is looking in its rearview mirror and celebrating a record-breaking year on racetracks around the world. And, just as importantly, acknowledging  what all those victories mean for everyone who craves the ultimate in off-road exhilaration. 

“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.”  

So Many Podiums 

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. 

Highlights from Around the World

• 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. 

“The development of our vehicles is done from the rider down, and we create machines suited to  their wide array of needs,” says Jean-François Leclerc, BRP Race Manager. “The fact that the  Maverick X3 can achieve such amazing results across the board on the hardest tracks in the  world means it’s built to overcome any challenges thrown at it by weekend riders.” 

People looking for a vehicle capable of tackling the toughest terrain, remote vistas and exciting  trails can rely on the winning vehicles of the world’s hardest off-road races. Racing nearly every  weekend demonstrates the astounding solidity and flexibility of the Maverick X3. Whether riders  are looking for a thrill in the rocks or the mud, or landowners needing a vehicle that can work as  hard as they do, it can be done with confidence in a Can-Am machine built to conquer the roughest  conditions.
