UPDATE: It’s been confirmed that Arctic Cat will be entering 2 of their Wildcat 1000s into the 2016 King of the Hammers race driven by Robby Gordon and Todd Romano (Founder and president of Dragonfire Racing and co-founder of SPEED RMG).
The Wildcats will be similar to the ones we’ve seen on the internet catching huge air in Glamis over Thanksgiving and currently driven at the Super Stadium Trucks races. These machines do employ the proprietary trailing arm design which will definitely have a leg up on the competition with it’s superior ground clearance. We look forward to watching the action.
Posted early this morning UTV Underground announced that Robby Gordon has entered King of the Hammers with an Arctic Cat Wildcat. With Robby being sponsored by Arctic Cat, we hope to see him driving a prototype next-gen Wildcat! At a minimum, we expect to see a “best of the best” machine with the Robby Gordon designed trailing arms, tall 30″ tires, and the high-output Arctic Cat H2 engine.
For you who do not know, last years 2015 King of the Hammers SXS class was nearly won by a showroom stock 2015 Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport 700. The machine was equipped with ONLY wheels/tires (29 inch Bighorns) and placed second in the Pro-UTV class against fully modified 1000cc race machines. We hope to see Robby take first!
