BRP's Design team has produced the F1 Grand Prix du Canada trophy for the last three years. Some of these designers will be present at BRP's booth to discuss the rationale and challenges behind their conception Friday, November 15. Participants will have the opportunity to take photographs of the F1 trophy, along with BRP products such as Ski-Doo snowmobiles, Sea-Doo watercraft, Evinrude outboard engines and Can-Am off-road vehicles and Spyder roadsters. These same designers also developed the RMCGF trophies that will be on display along with a kart powered by a Rotax engine.
In addition, a BRP Recruitment team is holding an engine contest on November 12 and 13 where participants go head-to-head and race to adjust a balance drive. Eligible candidates can also enter a drawing to win a three-day trip to Valcourt, Canada, birthplace of the Ski-Doo snowmobile, to discover BRP first-hand.
"The BRP team and our partners at NOLA Motorsports Park and MAX Speed Group have pulled out all the stops," said François Tremblay, director of marketing, Rotax kart engines.
