Arctic Cat finds success in Snocross and Hillclimb
Arctic Cat has reason to be excited as Team Arctic snocross and hillclimb racers earned 10 World Championship titles and 29 podium positions in a single weekend.
At the FIM Snowcross World Championship in Mala, Sweden, Team Arctic’s Tucker Hibbert won his first-ever World title in convincing fashion, going 1-1-2 in the round-robin format finals. Just as impressive was the history-making Team Arctic podium sweep, with Sweden’s Johan Lidman taking second and Alaska’s Cory Davis taking third.
On this side of the pond, Team Arctic hillclimbers applied their skill with the incredible climbing ability of the M Series snowmobiles to win nine classes at the Jackson Hole (Wyoming) World Championships, including two King of the Mountain titles.
Highlighting Arctic Cat’s strength in all engine categories, Team Arctic racers scored wins in the 600, 700, 800 and Open classes.
“Winning 10 World Championship titles in a single weekend is a huge accomplishment for Team Arctic,” says Mike Kloety, Team Arctic race manager. “Sweeping the podium in Sweden put an exclamation mark on another winning season of snocross.
“Taking nine hillclimb World Championship titles across the full spectrum of classes confirms the strength of our racers and crews, the hard work of Al Shimpa our hillclimb coordinator, and the performance of our machines.”
