Snowmobilers have the reputation for being extremely brand loyal consumers.

It’s hard to believe but 40 years ago this fall the snowmobile world was abuzz with a new race series called SnoPro.

What was different about this comparison was that it was the same model of sled, but with nine years difference between them.

As the cool winds of autumn swept across the North American Snow Belt in 1972 the snowmobile industry was teetering on the brink of a “ Perfect Storm”. Entering into the ‘73-model year there were close to 60 sled builders still in the game.

rotaryThe snowmobile industry has  seen  many amazing engines over the past 50 years. From industrial 4-strokes, 2-strokes with rotary valve intakes, variable exhaust valves, reed valve intakes, liquid cooling, EFI, DFI, turbo-charged 4-strokes to E-TEC. One engine that you may not have known that powered a number of sleds for nearly ten years was the Wankel (rotary engine). Say What?  You read right, rotary engines.
