SNOW 50 • September 4, 2017 • Powersports Business www.PowersportsBusiness.com For the second consecutive year, Tucker Hibbert and his team of fans, friends and family participated in the Walk for Wishes event in Minneapolis to support and cel- ebrate the mission of Make-A-Wish Min- nesota. Hibbert's Team 68 took home top fundraising honors, helping the organiza- tion exceed its goal of raising over $92,000 to fund the wishes of children diagnosed with critical illnesses. "This event means a lot to me," said Hibbert. "It's a humbling experience to have so many people join me and donate to help grant wishes. Walk for Wishes is a great way to get together and celebrate an organization that's making a difference in people's lives." Over the past two years, Hibbert and Team 68 have raised over $20,000 for Make-A-Wish Minnesota. Hibbert sent donors a limited edition Team 68 Walk for Wishes t-shirt. CAMSO UNVEILS ATV R4S TRACK SYSTEM Magog, Quebec-based Camso has launched its ATV R4S track system. The track system is available for a variety of ATVs 500cc or smaller. "We've been showing consumers the ATV R4S at shows in Canada and the U.S. and get- ting a lot of positive feedback from potential customers," said Bruce Dashnaw, sales and marketing director. "At Camso, we want to grant everyone access to a bigger playground. In this case, that means making track systems available for older or smaller machines." Camso spared no effort in designing and building a robust system that can be used year round. Its 8-inch width reduces ground pressure and provides compa- rable flotation and traction to wider track systems designed for larger cc vehicles. Sprockets are adapted to prevent clutch and engine overload, and the optimized geometry of the ATV 4RS ensures optimal performance and handling. "The ATV R4S is the perfect track system to take your ATV further than ever before, for less. It makes all-season off-road mobility accessible for more riders," said Dashnaw. The new track conversion system fits almost every 500cc and under ATV model on the market and is intended for lighter-duty applications such as ice fishing, hunting, farming and reaching the cabin. It's backed by a two-year limited warranty. SKI-DOO VETERAN RETIRES Berthold Fecteau retired from BRP in July. Fecteau was responsible for 26 patents for his work with Ski-Doo snowmobiles and the Can-Am Spyder. Ski-Doo reports, "He was one of the originators of the rider forward concept intro- duced on the first REV prototypes, which he helped design and build. It has affected every snowmobile designed since."
