Polaris Factory Racing Brazil – Torrez Azevedo Rally Team to Race Six Pro R UTV’s at Rally dos Sertões on Trail Blade X/T SXS Tires
\Atturo Trail Blade X/T SXS Tires are the tires of choice of Polaris Factory Racing Brazil. Torrez Azevedo Rally Team is preparing for the 3800KM Rally dos Sertões that travels across the country from Petrolina, PE, to Prea, CE, over the course of 8 days. The team will field 6 Polaris Pro R UTVs in the rally, all equipped with Atturo’s new Trail Blade X/T SXS Tires. The team will utilize 30×10.00R15 and 32×10.00R15 sizes, depending on the stage of the rally.
Jean Azevedo, an accomplished rally racer in Motorcycles and Cars in Brazil and Dakar over the last three decades, has ventured into the UTV Class this year through a partnership with the Torres family and the support of Polaris Factory Racing Brazil. The team was developed in collaboration with Polaris Brazil to showcase the competitiveness and durability of the Pro R in endurance rally racing. With its steel belted construction and race-proven design, the Trail Blade X/T SXS was an obvious choice for this machine and type of racing.
“Atturo Tires surprised us in the tests and during the Jalapão Rally, in which we had an incredible performance,” Says Jean Azevedo, Driver – Polaris Factory Racing. “The products are very resistant, with qualities that are essential to overcome all the demands of the Sertões Rally. We are very happy to have this partnership.”
The Rally dos Sertões is in its 30th year of competition and traverses some of Brazil’s most scenic but unforgiving terrain as competitors travel from city to city across the country. This year’s rally is expected to draw nearly 200 racers across all classes and a caravan of 2,000+ people to support the teams. Since 2008 it is also one of the official stages of the International Automobile Federation’s World Cross-Country Championship. This year’s rally runs from August 11th – August 19th.
