Valcourt, Québec, October 17, 2014 – BRP filled the weekend of the 2014 IJSBA World Finals with excitement, led by Sea-Doo riders Jean-Baptiste Botti and James Bushell winning the premier Pro Open and Pro GP world championships respectively.
Both riders claimed their championships on Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 models with this being Bottis first Pro Open world title and Bushells seventh World Title in four years.
"The RXP-X T3 hull has been so good to me and has been key to winning seven World Titles*, said Bushell. "The T3 hull dynamics combined with the Ergolock system and my Sea-Doo Centre engine package allows me to maintain maximum speed around the entire track.
"BRPs 12 Pro World Titles in the last four years in the premier racing classes is a resounding statement for the Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 model, said Julie Tourville, Global Marketing Director, Sea-Doo watercraft. "Both Botti and Bushell depended on the exclusive Sea-Doo RXP-X T3 hull that allowed them to track straight through chop and lean into corners to turn tighter and faster.
The IJSBA World Finals is the largest watercraft specific event in North America where the best racers from around the globe converge to compete for World Championships. In addition to the high-caliber racing, BRP also hosted the fourth annual Sea-Doo Ultimate Owners Ride that saw a fleet of Sea-Doo watercraft owners ride from Lake Havasu to Pirate Cove Resort in Topock, CA.
