My sons visited the travelling funfair here in Southern Normandy.  Apparently you buy this dodgem token for 2 euros at a kiosk and then place it in a slot on the dodgem.
Plastic
Concave rim
1.6g
28mm
They missed out on this ride!  ;D
Always willing to trade.  See my profile for areas of interest.

Others very similar are in use at Weston super mare UK;  similar to a small pulley wheel they are inserted into a slot on a Bumper car to actuate the electrical equipment.

Can I ask you to return and buy one for me? ???

The fair has moved on but next time they're in town I'll bag some for you.

These pieces look very similar http://www.autotamponneuse.com/pieces-monnayeurs.html
It appears the German for bumper car is autoskooter.  Italian autoscooter
And here's an Italian site http://www.ebes.it/prodotti/2/Plastic%20tokens/Plastic%20tokens.aspx
Note the FR numbered tokens.

Yes those are very similar and Weston Super Mare grand pier must have got their supplies from one of those suppliers.

Notice too I am still seeking one described as 1 at centre of recessed area, no rim. Rev. 3 at top of recessed area. ~ Yellow Plastic 29 mm.
