Zapping Auto Moto Renault Rafale: first contact with the large SUV coupé from the Losange
This is a very special pre-race. Indeed, for these 2023 World Athletics Championships, athletes have the chance to be transported by cart to the site of the National Athletics Center in Budapest.
Important comfort for these athletes, except when two of these cute little vehicles come into collision.
This is precisely what happened on Thursday August 24, just before the men’s 200m semi-finals. The sprinters found themselves involved in an unlikely collision.

At the bend of an intersection, just a few meters from the stadium, two carts collided. We wonder how the drivers did not see each other arriving, but the result is there.
Luckily, no athlete was injured during this incident, but as the images from the on-board cameras show, some were still well shaken.
To sum up
A somewhat special pre-race for these sprinters involved against their will in a buggy accident.
