The Polaris Racing Team started the Australian Rally Championship (ARC) SXS (Side by Side) Challenge season with a win at the Western Australian round in April and are excited for the Scouts Rally in South Australia commencing next weekend the 1st and 2nd of August.

The Polaris Racing Team with driver four time Asia-Pacific Rally Champion, Cody Crocker and Co-Driver Greg Foletta were happy with how their new RZR XP 1000 performed in WA and are excited to compete in the Scouts Rally for the first time in a RZR next weekend.

"The new RZR didn't put a foot wrong in WA, it's just awesome. The past two years we have run a RZR XP 900 which was very dependable and great fun. The best thing about the new RZR XP 1000 is that it does everything the 900 did just that bit better, it is wider, it is longer and it is faster! The Scouts Rally will be great for the RZR and it should really suit the mix of forest and shire roads" said Cody Crocker.

One of the best things about racing a Polaris RZR is that not only is the vehicle very competitive it is very cost effective. The ARC SXS Challenge is designed to avoid "cheque book" racing, anyone can enter the SXS class of the ARC with a Polaris RZR and all they need to add is the required CAMS safety cage and equipment. This puts everyone on a level playing field and makes motorsport very accessible with low costs involved compared to that of a properly set up Rally Car.

"A SXS costs roughly $35k to set up with the appropriate CAMS safety cage and gear. Add on to this some spare parts and tyres for each Rally and you still have a very affordable form of racing. Most Rally cars that are racing on the same stages as us cost hundreds of thousands and aren't cheap to repair" said Greg Foletta.

All of the action from the Scouts Rally will be brought to you live on our Facebook page "Polaris Australia."
