The Jetcross Pro World Tour is a championship that pits some of the world's best Jetski pilots against each other with gear capable of developing up to 200 horsepower, reaching 120 km/h and going from 0 to 100 in less than 3 seconds! It is organized under the aegis of the International Jetsport Boating Association (IJSBA) and has four meetings between April and September. The third of these took place in France in Vichy on 29/30th July and saw victory for Valentin Dardillat, whose team Dardillat Eight Racing has been technically supported by Motul for several years.
The Frenchman, a native of the seaside resort of Royan, began the season in the best way within the prestigious setting of Daytona Beach. By winning the three US rounds, Valentin Dardillat positioned himself as a favorite. During the Swiss event, near Neuchâtel, he had to be satisfied with 2nd place but with a minimal gap to the winner, and it was as the leader of the series that he showed up for the start in Vichy. While his two toughest opponents collided, he won the first round and had only to secure a pair of third places to win overall. There will be a round in France on 9/10th September for the final outcome of the 2017 JX Pro World Tour!
