Order Reprints

Gates Corporation today announces its G-Force sponsored racers for the 2016 season.

Sponsored racers represent a variety of winter, off-road and dirt powersports racing categories – including snowmobiling, snowmobile drag, snowmobile cross-country, ATV, side-by-side, and CVT. It was a very competitive application process with many racers from across the U.S. applying for a limited number of available sponsorships.

Sponsored racers will represent and be supported throughout the 2016 season by the Gates G-Force belt line. G-Force belts are industry-leading components for transferring power on ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles or other powersport equipment. The belts are designed to handle the most demanding off-road and racing conditions with ease and are specially engineered for superior fit, strength, performance and durability to work in the harshest of conditions. Tests have shown that G-Force belts outlast and outperform other high-performance belts by more than 2 times.

“We are proud to announce this year’s roster of Gates G-Force sponsored racers,” said Rolando Arroyo, Gates Powersports Belt Line Manager. “Through a difficult selection process, we are confident that our final roster represents the diverse powersports category and we are honored to support these racers with our G-Force line.”
