CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 WINS DAKAR RALLY FOR THE 5TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR

It’s that time of the year when racers globally come together and compete for the winning title for the world’s toughest and most grueling off-road race in the world. On January 14th 2022, Cam-Am Off-Road solidified their global racing dominance by taking home top positions at the renowned Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia for the fifth year in a row.

Can-Am Factory racer, Austin Jones (United States), together with navigator, Gustavo Gugelmin (Brazil) claimed 1st place with the best overall time in the SSV class with the Maverick X3. We also had Gerard Farrés and Diego Ortega finished in 2nd place and, Rokas Baciuska finished in 3rd place for a full podium sweep for Can-Am.

“It’s incredible to win the Dakar Rally,” said Jones. “This event is truly the ultimate test of off-road racing. Anything can happen, and we pushed hard until the very end against extremely strong competition. My navigator and team did a great job, and the Can-Am was awesome with its performance and durability.”

Can-Am racers were supported by South Racing Can-Am, which had more than 150 personnel in Saudi Arabia helping to field everything from mechanics to logistics and meals for more than 21 Can-Am Maverick X3 racers. South Racing-built Can-Am vehicles have a 100% finishing record at the Dakar Rally, and have won the side-by-side category each year since 2018.

“It takes a true team effort to accomplish what our Can-Am Off-Road team just did at the Dakar Rally,” said Sandy Scullion, Senior Vice President, Global Retail and Service – Powersports at BRP. “We have the best of the best, from drivers to support staff to the incredible Can-Am Maverick X3 platform. We can’t wait for what’s in store for the rest of this year for racing as we plan to continue our incredible momentum with championships from all over the world.”
