"Created in 1957 by Jean Graton, Michel Vaillant embodies an ideal: an honest, loyal, brave motor racing champion. A member of team Vaillante, founded by his parents, he is an exceptional driver who's always prepared to put himself in danger in order to help others, denounce an injustice or unmask cheats and crooks. Jean Graton, who is always well-informed about the latest technological innovations and very much acquainted with the world of racing circuits and teams, has developed a popular series, which to this day remains a reference through the generations for those with a passion for motor sports."

V2 Michel Vaillant
Following the dramatic events on the track in Portimão, Michel Vaillant has been banned from racing until the end of the season. On top of that, he's increasingly worried about his son's involvement in a business that Michel feels is incompatible with their family values. To shake things up a bit, he decides to set himself a new challenge: taking on the land speed record with an electric car at the Bonneville Salt Flats. With the prestige of the Vaillante brand at stake, he's got a lot of pressure on his shoulders. Their sponsors are watching closely, and his father will accept nothing less than success, especially given his distaste for electric cars. It's once again make-or-break for Michel Vaillant.

Michel Vaillant is the star of all the biggest international auto racing circuits, and he's revving up for a whole lot more than just a spin around the block.

The fate of the Vaillant dynasty is in the hands of three generations of men and women. The first challenge is to fight their way to the top on the race track, with their sights set on Formula 1. The second is to try to keep the family together, despite increasingly differing points of views. And it will be up to Michel to ensure their success on both fronts.
