Wacky Races

A flag falls. Surrounded by the howling of engines, the vapors of gasoline, clouds of dust and attentive look of the public... cars dash. On the track, the sheet steel is torn apart, shocks destroy, the mud erases the team colors.

Truck driver, post-office employee, farmer, nurse, worker, secretary... Rural French peoples, these pilots, and passionate mechanics find themselves together on the starting line every weekend from May till September.

Forgetting daily life challenges one lap at a time.
