No wine, no cheese, no frog legs: how simple Frenchmen have fun

Categories: Auto | Europe

On a large field in Northern France, not far from the Belgian border, members of one of the local car clubs regularly gather. They arrange a kind of rally of cars converted into racing, the so-called "car rodeo". The budget of the event is limited, the track consists of mud a little more than completely, and the homemade "cars" look like they will fall apart from any sneeze. And at the same time, few people participate in the race for the sake of victory, because the cash prize is not too big.

During the races, free drinks are distributed, children rush around like crazy, a merciless stream of hits from the 80s plays from every iron, and at the same time you will not see a single advertising banner. However, the main attention of the participants is still focused on the competition. French photojournalist Eduard Sapulcr made a photo report about one of the recent "rodeos".
