Champ De Mars: A Car Damages The Track Barrier

An unusual scene happened this Saturday afternoon, June 11 at Champ De Mars during the 12th day of horse races.

The driver of a car parked in the parking lot located in the playing ground of Champ De Mars made a false maneuver. The vehicle was reversing before hitting a first barrier of the small sand track and then the barrier of the inner runway safety.


The incident occurred between the 6th and the 7th race in the middle of the end line, according to a source. The Mauritius Turf Club staff (MTC) did not waste time to repair the track barrier after the incident.

We do not know for now if there were any injuries.
