24 hours 4x4 - 2009

As every year at the beginning of September the lovers of motorsport, 4x4 and off-road races meet at Chevannes (91) to attend to the 24 Hours off road of France. For this 2009 edition (the 17th), more than 120 vehicules competed on the 10 km long track.

We are far from the huge organisation of the 24 hours of Le Mans. The security is perfectly ensured by a competent team of marshalls and there is still a free ambiance of competition. Spectators can walk very near to the pits, see the mecanics work on the cars and see the buggies roar on the track few meters away.

Competition side, its a little bit like at the beginning of the Dakar rally with prototypes, buggies and more or less standard vehicles sharing the track, the ones ensuring lap after lap, the others dodging in and out among the slowest.

And sometimes you can see a spectacular crash in a cloud of dirt, but fortunately the speed is not so high and the cars are very strong, so no consequence for the pilots, only a lot of work for the mecanics !
