The team received a Polaris RZR XP Polaris France that was prepped by Xtreme Plus to compete against a tough field of RZR XPs, RZRs and Commanders. In the end, the solid driving of Beau and Mark, allowed them to gain a lap on the competition and back down the pace to save the car and win the overall.
"This event was awesome. The sport of sidexside racing is really great right now. With the WORCS series drawing big numbers, a successful Best in The Desert series and international racing going off, this is really exciting to see. " said Mark Holz.
This race was comprised of 4 sessions and 40 cars. The racing started with qualifying on a track that was laid out on the rolling wheat fields of the French countryside. With lap times averaging 4 minutes, there was always action on this tricky off-camber track. Beau lead off in Saturday's first two-hour session and handed off the car to Holz at the gas stop - and ended the session in first place, lapping up to fourth place. Beau took that momentum into the 1.5 hour night race and put a lap on the field. Sunday the US Drivers picked up where they left off and each drove a smart, smooth race to finish on top of the box with the win.
When the dust settled after the 6.5 hours of racing, 17 of the 40 car field finished. Attrition was a factor as the course littered with huge holes and waist deep berms caused DNFs for the teams that weren't prepared. The mechanics from Xtreme Plus, winners of the sxs class at the 2012 Dakar Rally, prepped the RZR XP and provided solid pit support all weekend contributing to the win.
Looking ahead, Holz and the Scott Kiger Coastal/HRP RZR XP will compete at the Best in the Desert General Tire Vegas to Reno on August 17th.
