The Evolution of its Class-Leading RZR Pro R, All-New Polaris-Engineered Race UTV Features Race-Tuned Power, Desert-Proven Strength & Unmatched Control

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – March 16, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) –  Polaris Off Road, the leader in off-road vehicle innovation, today unveiled the industry’s first purpose-built race-ready UTV – the RZR Pro R Factory. Based on its award-winning RZR Pro R platform, RZR Pro R Factory is specifically engineered to thrive against the grueling demands of open desert racing, providing a powerful centerpiece for its recently announced Polaris Factory Racing team.

Harkening back to the days when automotive OEMs developed factory-engineered, race-ready trophy trucks for their factory off-road racing programs, Polaris is doing the same with RZR Pro R Factory and breaking entirely new ground for the UTV racing class. Four Pro R Factory vehicles have been developed for the Polaris Factory Racing team, with the team and vehicles making their debut at the upcoming San Felipe 250. This season will see the team compete in the SCORE International series and the Best in the Desert’s Vegas to Reno race.

“Since the early days when automotive OEMs drove the evolution of off-road racing, to the modern factory racing programs that exist today in auto racing, every legitimate factory racing program has been built around the development of a purpose-built race vehicle, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with the RZR Pro R Factory,” said Reid Wilson, Vice President, Polaris Off Road Recreation. “We are a company of passionate enthusiasts that live and breathe the off-road lifestyle and the development of the RZR Pro R Factory was nothing short of a labor of love. We are excited to arm our new factory racing team with this incredible machine as we embark on our inaugural season at the San Felipe 250.”

Last year, the RZR Pro R demonstrated an elite combination of performance and durability when Brandon Sims captured the 2022 Baja 1000 UTV Overall. With its purpose-built RZR Pro R Factory, Polaris has taken the Pro R platform and elevated it with a race-ready level of power, strength and control that’s capable of withstanding the harsh terrain and unrelenting demands of desert racing’s most daunting events.
