Valcourt, Québec, September 22, 2006 – Can-AmTM ATVs from BRP won the manufacturers' championship of the inaugural World PowerSports Association (WPSA) Quadterrain racing tour.
Despite only competing in 9 of 10 events on the start-up circuit, racers on stock Can-Am OutlanderTM 650 H.O. EFI 4x4 ATVs won four races – the most of any manufacturer, and 12 of 30 podium spots – twice as many as the closest competitor.

“This was a great first season for Can-Am and the WPSA,” said Yves Leduc, Vice-President, General Manager, Snowmobiles, Watercraft, Sport boats and ATVs, BRP. “With three different riders winning races and dominating the holeshot awards, we showed ATV enthusiasts that Can-Am ATVs and performance are synonymous.”
