BRP’s Ski-Doo X-Team has announced past winners Scott Davis and Todd Palin will use Ski-Doo MX Z X E-TEC 600 models when they pair up once again for the Iron Dog race. The pair had been using Arctic Cat snowmobiles in recent years.
The Iron Dog Gold Rush Classic is an off-trail snowmobile race covering 2,000 miles across Alaska. Seven-time winner Davis and four-time winner Palin have five top-three finishes in their eight years as a team.
“We want every advantage we can get,” says Davis, “and BRP’s Ski-Doo sleds have the best combination of speed, durability and handling that can win this race.”
“The Rotax E-TEC engines proved last year that they bring a clear fuel mileage advantage while delivering the power you need to run at the front,” added Palin.
“We’re proud to have Scott and Todd join BRP’s Ski-Doo X-Team,” says Yves Leduc, vice president and general manager, North America division. “The Iron Dog race is a gruelling event and Ski-Doo snowmobiles with these two talented riders make a great match.”
