The history of an extreme sport - off-road as a sport and a hobby

Off-roading is more than just a way of driving - it is a way of life, a passion and an adventure for millions of fans around the world. But how has it evolved as a sport and hobby over the years? To find out, we need to go back in time and look at the beginnings and evolution of this great sport.

The beginnings of off-road

The beginnings of off-road driving can be traced back to the mid-20th century, when the armed forces and industry began using vehicles with special off-road features. In the 1920s and 1930s, the Baja 1000 and Dakar Rally were among the first events to popularize and turn off-roading into a sport.

The promotion of the extreme sport of off-road

In the 1960s and 1970s, racing events such as the Baja 1000 and its prototype, the Mint 400, established a solid base for the sport. These events attracted the attention of the auto industry, which began producing specialized off-road vehicles such as the Ford Bronco, Chevrolet Blazer and Toyota Land Cruiser.

Off-road driving as a hobby

With the development of the automotive industry and technology, off-roading is becoming accessible not only to racers but also to hobby users. Throughout the 80s and 90s, it became a popular hobby among car enthusiasts looking for adventure and adrenaline off the tarmac.

Moreover, off-roading is becoming a popular hobby for families and friends. It is for those who seek adventure in nature and off the usual roads.
