J.Juan – the second largest manufacturer of brake components in Europe – today announced it has signed a sponsorship agreement with champion pro off-road racer, Marc Burnett. The multi-Baja winner will be racing the upcoming Baja 1000 with his Can-AM Maverick X3 Turbo equipped with the finest high-performance competition brakes for UTV and Side-by-Side available in today’s market designed and manufactured in J.Juan Barcelona’s factory.
Now, with three Baja 500 and one Baja 1000 titles on his back, the Official Can-Am rider’s goal is to make his 2017 Can-Am X3 race car the best ever. The latest technology of the Spanish company will now make Burnett’s brakes last until the end of grueling off-road races, while current brake systems for these kinds of vehicles historically wear and fail before competitions come to an end.
For the 50th Annual 2017 SCORE Baja 1000 – November 14-18 from Ensenada, BC to La Paz, BCS, Mexico (regarded as the most demanding race for UTV and Side-by-Side) – Burnett’s Maverick X3 Turbo will wear the custom Avant-Garde full CNC Billet Caliper that J.Juan designed and made specifically for this car.
While Burnett’s background was originally in years of off-road motorcycle and truck racing, his recent years of championship UTV and Side-by-Side racing and experience with this kind of four wheel vehicles is why today he choses to only team with the best manufacturers.
“I look forward to my partnership with J.Juan Brakes,” notes Burnett, “The J.Juan Brand are unquestionably the best brakes in the market”.
“We are proud to support such an esteemed racer as Marc Burnett”, states CEO of J.Juan Group Jose Luis Juan. “Our company always looks to the future and to have Marc Burnett with us is more than simply exciting… because it means we start this adventure by teaming with the very best”.
“He likes our brakes (which we are happy to provide)… and we like Marc Burnett,” he adds, “Together, it is a winning combination”.
