GBC Motorsports’ Tires Give Winning Traction to Historic Sweep of Baja 1000

LONG BEACH, Calif., December 12, 2008 -­ GBC Motorsports is thrilled to announce that its tires supported the historic victory of the Bi-Polar Extreme Racing Team/Arctic Cat win at this year’s grueling Baja 1000. This historic win is remarkable in that it was the first time that a UTV completed the race.

The number one finisher was an Arctic Cat Prowler XTZ 1000 driven by Jim Creagan. Featuring 10” of ground clearance and fully independent suspension, the victorious Prowler XTZ 1000 was outfitted with GBC’s new Grim Reaper™ performance tires. Grim Reaper™ combines an aggressive tread pattern with deep wrap-around shoulder lugs to give you uncompromising performance and traction. This 8-ply rated all-terrain radial with up to 1,045 lbs. max load is constructed with a zig-zag center ridgeline, for superior puncture resistance and enhanced rider comfort. GBC Motorsports carries a wide line of ATV/UTV tires for all types of terrains and riders.

The number two finisher was an Arctic Cat Prowler XTX 700 EFI driven by three sets of drivers. Featuring 12.5” of ground clearance and full independent suspension, the second place finisher was equipped with GBC’s new Dirt Commander™ tires. GBC Motorsports Performance ATV tires are built to get you over tough terrains to your destination. Dirt Commander™, GBC's new all terrain tire, is a super tough 8-ply rated bias tire radial with up to 1,045 lbs. max load that gives you excellent puncture resistance. Its siped tread design also gives additional biting edges for better traction in mixed terrains.

“We put everything into designing the Grim Reaper and Dirt Commander as tough challengers capable of taming the most hostile terrain. The Baja 1000 was the perfect venue to showcase the endurance of our all-terrain, high-performance tires,” said Randy Tsai. “We’re extremely proud to be part of such an historic race and to work with the incredible Bi-Polar crew. Our congratulations go out to Jim and all the team members.”

The world’s longest race, the 41st Annual SCORE Baja 1000 took place November 19 - 23. Totaling 631.35 miles, the brutal race promises an array of machine-breaking hazards for most brands. Arctic Cat and GBC broke with the majority and not only survived the race, but overcame all odds to win.

      have a new actuator to install, but can't seem to get the old one off. Have removed the screw and can wiggle it freely, but cant get the tube and o ring that go to into the differential to come free. trying not to break it off in the process. Any suggestions besides more brute force?
