Team Lotus and Team AirAsia Will Be Supplied by BRP
Bombardier Recreational Products Inc., BRP for short, is one of the top suppliers of motorised recreational vehicles in the world, with machines like the Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles, Sea-Doo watercraft and boats being just a few products in their range.
As part of the new agreement, both teams will receive a series of Can-Am vehicles supplied by BRP. A Can-Am Outlander Max 800 Limited model painted in the teams colours, green and yellow for Team Lotus and red and white for Team AirAsia, will be present at each grand prix in order to fulfill the team’s tasks throughout the events. The vehicle will be used to tow all sorts of equipment to the pits and to the garages and everything in between.
"The FIA Formula One World Championship and GP2 Series attract motor sports enthusiasts and we believe that our Can-Am products clearly set the benchmark when it comes to the world of powersports and performance and fits perfectly in this environment," said Bernard Leblanc, Vice President & Regional General Manager – Western Europe, Middle-East and Africa.
A Can-Am Spyder RS roadster will serve as a play tool for motor sports professionals that want to experience the thrill of riding a 3 wheel vehicle on tarmac.
Riad Asmat, CEO of Team Lotus and Team AirAsia Team Principal commented: “We are delighted to welcome BRP into both teams and are very pleased we have the opportunity to showcase the Can-Am Outlander Max 800 Limited in the F1 and GP2 environments, and improve our logistical capabilities on track as a result.”
