The new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine will power the majority of the Ranger Boats. “I think customers will be thrilled to see the unrivaled performance, bold breakthrough design and learn about the industry-leading maintenance schedule of the E-TEC G2 engine from our pros,” said Krista Heidgerken, Senior Communications Specialist for Evinrude Outboards. The newly designed engines boast 20 percent more torque, up to 15 percent better fuel efficiency and up to 75 percent fewer total regulated emissions than leading competitors’ four-stroke engines. The time in the boat to talk about fishing with the pros is unrivaled,” said George Liddle of Ranger Boats. “Getting an opportunity to experience boats, motors and electronics plants a seed for months or years down the road.”

The first 50 attendees who take a TESTRIDE receive a FREE gift.

Each TESTRIDE™ event is tied to local festivals, tournament weigh-ins or other high-traffic events. Plus, radio spots (some with live remote broadcasts) occur in each and every market. In addition, over 12,000 email invitations are shared with target market attendees, maximizing heightened exposure.

Onsite signage and banners highlight sponsors and partners as well as product placement and literature display. And all pre- and post-event press releases highlight TESTRIDE™ sponsors and partners, too. Your involvement in TESTRIDE™ extends before, during and after the on-the-water experience.

Past TESTRIDE™ event sponsors and partners have seen proven, trackable results. Participation is an investment in future business, plain and simple. Sign up for a complete TESTRIDE™ season today. New sponsors and partners are always welcome.
