Just announced today, the Yamaha Rhino will be the Official UTV for Best in the Desert. Lets hope this commitment from Yamaha will entice other UTV manufactures to step up and support our class. sincerely Cory S.

Hey Corry its about time the yamaha guys got off their butt (being nice) and did something with this sport, i think they were waiting for us racers to spend our own time and money to do their r&d for them, its about time but as u are well aware our efforts with them have not gone very far crap we couldnt even get them to return a phonecall, answer an email or for all i know get outta bed to see the sun rise. Anyway thats my 2 cents i think their a day late and a dollar short.

I guess I have had a much different experience with Yamaha.....I'm just happy to see them get on board with this type of racing. They sponsored the Rhino Nationals at Casa Grande last year...that's the last time I saw them sponsor rhino racing......so it's good to see them do something like this again.....

They will have to step up soon, with all the new stuff coming out....if they want to be in the limelight for UTV racing in the next couple of years.....I hope they do so - this leads me to think that the interest is there, and to me that's a good thing.....

Plus....hopefully BITD can benefit from this as well!!!

There is a saying " First kill all the Lawyers " Don't be so hard on Yamaha. They have been unable to associate themselves with any type of racing because of all the people that have tryed to sue them. As of today all Rhinos will be sold with doors, and all Rhinos that have been sold, will be invited to return to the dealer and have doors installed at Yamaha expence. The UTV racing community could help by not racing or allowing people to race UTVs without proper safety equiptment. ie. full doors, safety nets, no stock cages, racing seats, 5 point harnesses, fuel cells etc. I don,t mean to sound harsh, but racing is not cheap and promotors that allow UTVs to race without proper safety equiptment, in my opinion, are not concerned about safety, just the almighty $ dollar. The UTVRA can not associate or support any UTV series that allows racing without the proper safety equiptment. BITD, SCORE, CORR all require UTVs to meet the same safety requirements that have been proven to work. Lets all work together and continue to keep the class of racing safe, fun, and affordable. Thanks to all that have supported this new motorsport with there time, $ money, and ideas. Sincerely Cory S. Very Happy

Corry, didnt mean to be harsh just frustrated with the whole situation. and lack of support from the factory, but i feel sorry for them having to put doors on all those rhinos that sucks on their end. but who would have thought of taking a farm vehicle and racing it .
