The annual Mountain Mayhem Billy Cart Derby is back October 29 on Waratah Rd at Mangrove Mountain.
Held in conjunction with Mangrove Mountain and Districts Country Fair, the festivities kick off from 7:30am and the 2015 winner “King of the Hill,” Mr Zach Gallagher, has set the challenge for anyone brave enough to take him on. All sorts are encouraged across the Central Coast to get involved with the event with last year’s Derby attracting fathers, sons, grandfathers and grandchildren who all had fun building their carts and racing together.
“We had all sorts of entries last year, from the more traditional timber variety, to those made from left over pram or bicycle parts, and even one made from an old shopping trolley,” Derby spokesperson, Ms Sharon Peruch said. “All the rules and regulations for construction can be found on our Facebook page, along with entry forms. “So what are you waiting for? “It’s only a couple of months away, so get your boots on and get building. “There are categories to suit all age groups and we even have a corporate race this year. “So if you have a business to promote, please enter a cart with as much sign writing as you can manage on it. “I hope to see you on the hill,” Ms Peruch concluded.
