Bobcat Loaders Build Race Tracks

Posted: 1 December 2022

The 27th Kenny Festival, Europe's largest all-terrain event on two and four wheels, took place on the weekend of 10th and 11th September 2022 in Reygades in the South of Correze, France. Several Bobcat compact loaders, including a new T7X electric compact track loader being used for the first time in Europe, were used to help build and maintain the various tracks for racing.

More than 660 motocross riders took to the starting line, including many champions, and more than 1175 quad and motorbike riders. To build and maintain the tracks for the riders, T7X, Bobcat T650 and T770 compact track loaders were utilised .  

An Event with a History

 The event was born 27 years ago and retains its original spirit based on the simple pleasure of offering courses where riders of all ages can take part. Indeed, the motocross track has been unanimously recognised as a must on which all levels of riders can express themselves. All the participants had the ‘privilege’ of accessing the circuit in its perfectly maintained and unmarked condition on Saturday morning and then again when it was completely reconditioned on the Sunday. In all, a team of 80 people were mobilised for the organisation of this event in Correze, which was attended by around 6000 visitors over the weekend of 10-11 September 2022.

JLFO Events and Bobcat, An Outstanding Team  

The organizer, JLFO Events, has unequalled expertise in the construction of off-road tracks for cars, motorbikes and quads and has total control over everything involved. Each track is built strictly for the duration of the event and includes numerous structures specific to these disciplines. 

For many years, JLFO Events has relied on Bobcat machines to build the best tracks, sometimes in the most complex conditions," explained Jean-Luc Fouchet, Founding President of JFLO Events. "With our Bobcat compact track loaders, you can quickly carry out work, then stand back, look at the shape and correct it if necessary.” In addition to Bobcat operators and machines putting on a show by taking care of the trails, there was also a stand in the heart of the accompanying All-Terrain trade show, where other market-leading Bobcat products were on show including the very popular E10z mini-excavator.
