An evolving discipline
Originally from the United States, the SSV was born from the cross between quad and buggy. On two or four-wheel drive with a steering wheel instead of a handlebar, it made its debut on agricultural land. But very quickly, thanks to its off-road performance, it becomes attractive to motorsport and thrill seekers.
The SSV category was created, following competitions in his native country.
The phenomenon is rapidly becoming international with a Dakar debut and its arrival in France. About ten races are listed there, giving the Mondial du quad de Pont-de-Vaux a certain notoriety for the discipline.
The competition will be more and more contested due to the evolution of the specialty and the registration of more and more drivers. Over the last four editions, three manufacturers sweat blood and water for victory, Polaris having won the first and fourth editions, Yamaha the second and Can-Am the third.
For sure, this fifth edition of the SSV in Pont-de-Vaux will offer both drivers and the public a show rich in suspense and twists and turns, as the fight for victory between these three teams is fierce.
