Tractors: they organize a tractor cross race

A circuit in the department of Mayenne will soon host a tractor race. It is even the national tractor cross final.

When it comes to thinking about tractors, the image of car racing rarely comes to mind. These large machines do not adapt well to peak speeds and are not the most aerodynamic vehicles on the market. However, some enthusiasts or curious people have visibly detected potential in tractors to make them participate in competitions.

These are not competitions of elegance dedicated to tractors, but speed races. Several of these sporting events are occasionally organized throughout France. And the final will soon take place, on September 10, on the Véloché site, in Bré (in Mayenne). The race in question is more precisely a tractor cross event.

A resumption of tractor races after several years of cessation

It is the association Team Tracto Cross Diablinte (TCD) of Jublains which is at the origin of this cross tract course. As reported West France, this tractor sporting event was relaunched shortly after the Covid-19 pandemic, years after being abandoned. In the meantime, it was necessary to bring the Véloché site circuit up to standard.

“Before heading back to full speed on the Breen circuit, we had to improve the safety of the circuit, recommended by the national tractor cross federation (NTC). He was brought back into shape. The route was redesigned and the spectator stands remodeled. Everything has been done for the comfort of all”explained the president of l’association Team Tracto Cross DiablinteSamuel Bouvier.
