Dealership becomes title sponsor of race series
Pro Watercross is pleased to announce that Hidden Trails Motorsports/Yamaha will be the title sponsor of the 2015 Pro Watercross National Tour.
“The Pro Watercross Tour is the premier closed course racing series in the United States, and we are excited to partner with a series that offers a spectator friendly atmosphere and incorporates the finest professional and amateur racers from around the world. As this sport continues to improve, we look forward to being a positive force behind its growth,” the dealership said in a release.
As the title sponsor of the Pro Watercross Tour, Hidden Trails Motorsports wants to offer all Pro Watercross Tour members a unique benefit: For the entire 2015 race season, the dealership is offering all racers the opportunity to purchase units at its invoice cost, plus setup and doc fees. But the offer doesn’t just apply to PWC; it also includes model, any brand of ATVs, UTVs and motorcycles in stock. Racers will also receive a 15 percent discount on all OEM parts. HTM currently carries the following OEMs: Yamaha, Can-Am, Sea-Doo, Spyder, Suzuki and Christini.
This kind of support has never been offered before on such a large scale and will be the closest many racers ever get to receiving factory support. HTM is proud to be able to give back to its PWC family and looks forward to supporting the industry that has brought the dealership so much over the years, Hidden Trails Motorsports said in a press release.
Other new sponsors
Pro Watercross is excited to announce for the first time Slippery Wetsuits, Jet Renu and Jettrim are on board with the 2015 tour.
“These are all great companies that have established themselves into the watercross communities and have proven that their products are a valuable investment,” stated Nick Handler of Pro Watercross. “Each of these new sponsors is making a significant statement on the direction of Pro Watercross’ Tour and its impact on the racing community.”
Along with its wetsuits, life vests, gloves and footwear, Slippery Wetsuits offers a wide range of accessories for PWC enthusiasts. Slippery Wetsuits has been a key player within the watercross racing and personal watercraft community. Pro Watercross’ course marshals will be outfitted in Slippery’s best this season.
The late Gary Hart had a vision to develop a non-slip PWC floor mat that would stand up to harshest conditions and satisfy the most demanding rider. Since then, Jettrim has been producing custom one-off products that have withstood the test of time. Jettrim’s handcrafted products are used by the fastest racers and the happiest PWC enthusiasts around the world and are made in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.
Jet Renu manufactures a full line of reconditioning products for marine, automotive and more. Jet Renu was developed with riders’ and boaters’ best interests in mind, and the folks at Jet Renu understand their customers’ needs and concerns in finding the right cleaning product to care for their watercraft. Jet Renu’s products are conceived of and manufactured in Corona, Calif., and Jet Renu is an eco-friendly company.
Three sponsors return
The Pro Watercross Tour is pleased to welcome back its sponsors for the 2015 Pro Watercross Tour: OptimaRacing.com, Jetlift and Goggle Grip. Pro Watercross is appreciative for their continued support over the years.
OptimaRacing.com has supported the Pro Watercross National Tour since 2009 and is a great resource for performance and replacement parts as well as offering riding gear to casual wear.
Goggle Grips were born out of necessity. Brad Maloney, inventor of the Goggle Grip, knew first hand that keeping your goggles from slipping off your helmet during a PWC race was a major issue. With that, the company was formed, and Goggle Grip has been proudly supporting the PWC racing community since 2002, and its products have become a must-have for any racers.
Jetlift’s 5-in-1 multipurpose tote can easily be transformed from garage cart on casters to an all-terrain beach tote and once you are on the beach, converted into a beach stand. Jetlifts are made in the USA and built to last.
The 2015 Pro Watercross schedule is as follows: May 9-10 in Panama City Beach, Fla.; May 16-17 in Pensacola Beach, Fla.; June 20-21 in Sparks/Reno, Nev.; June 27-28 in St. George, Utah; July 18-19 in Lewisville, Texas (Dallas); and Aug. 8-9 in Hartwell, Ga., concluding with the National Championship Aug. 15-16 in Charleston, W.Va. and the World Championship Sept. 19-27 in Naples, Fla.
