BRP to arrange technical training for Lynx® Rave™ RS 600 and Ski-Doo® MX Zx 600 RS owners!

Rovaniemi, 7 October 2011 – BRP arranges Lynx & Ski-Doo Race School information and training event for owners of Lynx Rave RS and Ski-Doo MX Zx RS snowmobiles, models 2011 and 2012. The event will take place in Rovaniemi, Finland on 4 November 2011 just before the Kelekkamessut 2012 Snowmobile Exhibition.

"Race School will now be arranged for the third time" says Janne Tapio, Project Manager of BRP Finland Oy, who will act as lecturer in the event. "This year will be special as the other lecturer, Sebastien Thibault, is coming from Valcourt, Canada, the home of Ski-Doo snowmobiles. Thibault is working as Ski-Doo Racing Engineer in North America so we can guarantee that also Ski-Doo owners will have the best possible know-how at their disposal" promises Tapio.

Race School will give Lynx and Ski-Doo riders first-hand information on how to maximise performance of their sleds in races. "This year's Race School will have more focus on practicality. In addition to more theoretical technical information, we will also provide tips for race day strategy and set-up scenarios" Tapio continues.

The training is free of charge and arranged in English. Owners of Lynx Rave RS and Ski-Doo MX Zx RS 2011 and 2012, along with one mechanic are invited to the event.

Media representatives will have free access to the event.
