Offroad racing is one thing, but doing it with a UTV is crazy amounts of fun.
There are many names for a UTV, or Utility Task Vehicle, like Side By Side or ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle). Regardless at what you call them, they are incredibly fun to drive and race.
First off, where do they fit in? A Utility Task Vehicle or UTV is not necessarily a quad bike nor a car either, it is somewhat halfway in between the two of them. It is a compact open two-seater design, usually with race-like bucket seats, a racing steering wheel and a roll cage. A UTV has an incredible offroad capability as well, and is designed to be driven offroad at speed, therefore, it has mud-terrain tyres to give you grip in offroad conditions, and has a much softer dampening suspension setup to allow the driver to catch air while jumping and not brake their backs while doing it!
UTV's are not necessarily cheap, but if you compare them to a full-size offroad vehicle which is modified to do the same tasks, you will end up spending a whole lot more!
