Whacky Races is going to be 10 years old this year! It doesn’t seem like a decade
ago since a few villagers dreamt up the idea over a few pints in The Fortesue Arms.
Now, Whacky Races is a well known and eagerly anticipated
event in the local calendar. Hundreds of people flock from miles around to see the
dare-devil drivers race their karts down the steep hill through the village and compete
for the coveted Luscombe Trophy for the fastest kart. There will be lots of other
prizes too, and for this 10 year anniversary there is going to be some really special
prizes for the karts that best embody the spirit of The Whacky Races. So, with an
emphasis on silliness, its time to start building your kart for this year’s event
- the whackier the better!
For the race rules and how to enter, see details on the ‘race rules’ page.
Of course, there will be lots of other fun things to do, with a bouncy castle, live
music, food and drink stalls, kids kart races, a tug of war, swings, face painting
and a raffle with some great prizes. All the proceeds go to local groups and charities.
So, come along, have a great day out and help us celebrate our 10th birthday party!
