Following its official unveiling, the all-new Polaris single seat RZR RS1 captured two first-place finishes in its first competitive race at the WORCS season opener at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas Feb. 3-4. Polaris racer Ronnie Anderson swept the Pro Side-by-Side classes, taking the title in the SxS Pro and Pro Stock classes, with a dominating performance in the new RZR RS1.

“The RZR RS1 did everything I asked of it – incredible performance, unbelievably nimble, smooth and with tons of power,” said Ronnie Anderson, Polaris Factory Racing. “The Polaris design team has delivered the goods yet again. This is one serious racing machine.”

The nearly bone stock RZR RS1 (only upgraded to meet racing safety requirements) outpaced the competitive field, even besting turbo vehicles in the production and stock class. Following the recent announcement of its own exclusive class in Red Bull Global Rallycross, and now winning its first official race, the new RZR RS1 proving a formidable challenger in racing environments.

Polaris’ most-agile RZR to date, RZR RS1 will be the exclusive vehicle used in the new Red Bull Global Rallycross side-by-side class, Polaris GRC. The RZR RS1 will see its first Rallycross competition on Saturday, May 19 in the 2018 season opener at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

The nimble 64” width RZR RS1 features a 110-HP ProStar 1000 H.O. 4-Stroke DOHC Twin Cylinder, the RZR XP 1000’s suspension, upgraded drivetrain and compact, 83-inch wheelbase. The new chassis features a rear-mounted, dual-fan radiator for maximum engine cooling and a new race-hardened drivetrain.

The RZR RS1 also adopts the trailing-arm suspension of the RZR XP 1000, to absorb obstacles for the smoothest possible driving experience. The RZR RS1 boasts 20 vehicle-specific accessories and comes in White Lightning and Black Pearl. The RZR RS1 starts with an MSRP of $13,999 and is available dealerships now.
