A repentant of “wild rodeos” in Toulouse: “We talk about mechanics between enthusiasts”

the essential
This young 26-year-old delivery man has not set foot in a gathering of “runners” since the fall of 2021. He was a regular at the Friday evening one, route from Spain to Toulouse. But since he delivers drugs to the Oncopole, he understands that the proximity of a wild rodeo can bother the patients. However, he explains what makes mechanical fans like him run.

In contact with his girlfriend not interested in mechanics, Nassim ended up putting cars away. He’s still a BMW fan, but he hasn’t set foot in a gathering of runners since last fall. He readily admits it, two other events pushed him to evolve. A ticket for speeding, and his work as a delivery man which leads him to deliver drugs to the Oncopole. “I understand that patients can be bothered by noise,” he says.

However, he assures him, the runners are not delinquents or young people wishing to taunt the police. “The BM community, we stand out a bit. We are all enthusiasts. I am on a Facebook group. We exchange information. When we find ourselves in a gathering like the one on the road to Spain, it is first of all to talk about the car, to see which is the best prepared, which has the best sound. »

At these gatherings there are also Golf enthusiasts or even women who come with revamped Fiat 500s. “But they take fewer risks than the guys. Men deactivate ABS more easily. With torque and acceleration, the wheels spin; it allows you to turn around a roundabout while sliding. So, to squeal the tires.

Nassim prefers to work on the interior, the tinted windows, the rims. Racing isn’t his thing. “Of the 150 or 200 cars you see in a rally on a Friday night, no more than 20 are racing. There have been petitions to rent parking lots on which we would bother no one. If it were possible, there would always be some drawn by the adrenaline of illegality. But they would be fewer. »
