Team Splash’N Dirt rode their ITP/Yamaha Canada YFZ-450 to an impressive victory in the Les 12 Heures d’Endurance De La Tuque quad race. The speedy Pelchat brothers, along with team mate B. Prevost, took an early 2 lap lead after the first 4 hour interval and never looked back. At the end of the 12 hour race Team Splash’N Dirt finished an incredible 7 laps ahead of the next closest competitor and still looked as if they had more in the tank.
Sixty teams were on hand to participate this year including two all-female teams and a male/female team. Thousands of spectators flocked the small Quebec town of La Tuque to see the race many people are calling the toughest ATV race in North America.
In just it’s third year the 12 Hour Endurance race has doubled its entries and has seen competitors travel from as far as France and Belgium in order to take a crack at the $5,000 1st place prize. By the way – Team Sentier Quad walked away with $2,000 cash as the 1st place female team. Congratulations to M. Tanguay, M-E Turmel and A. Villeneuve who also happened to be riding a Yamaha YFZ-450.
