Braidwood Billy Cart Derby 2011

Leave a comment

Braidwood, NSW, held its second Billy Cart Derby over the weekend.

Details of the event are on the Braidwood Community Bank Billy Cart Derby blog.

Like last year it was a glorious late Autumn day.

There were some changes to the format of races from last year:

  • Maximum wheel diameter was increased to 315 mm.
  • The same cart was not used by more than one driver in each category – this prevented stoppages waiting for carts to be returned between heats.
  • The course for the under 8’s was shorter and with the finals of this category late morning to make the day shorter for the youngsters but no longer for anybody else.

Here are some pictures from the day:

I liked the way the whole town was involved from some of the youngest inhabitants

To those who entered the senior classes:

… and were confident enough to enter an Open class race:
