Thrills, spills, and billy carts in Corowa
ON Easter Saturday every year, the town of Corowa in Southern New South Wales comes alive as the centre of racing action, festival celebrations and family entertainment.
Forget the Melbourne Cup or Formula One, the hottest racing action in Australia happens in Corowa annually.
The McDonald’s Corowa 2016 Australian Billy Cart Championships is an event for all ages with competitors racing down the main street in their home-made or professionally created designs.
Thrills, spills, short pants and scraped knees are the order of the day; the stuff of childhood memories.
These days, however, expect the unexpected with designs limited only by the imagination.
This annual festival celebrates and showcases the spirit of the earliest form of racing - billy cart racing.
This event also provides the opportunity for entrants and spectators to develop their racing skills and enjoy fabulous music and entertainment.
Race entry costs $10 prior to race day, or $15 on the day.
Registration forms are available on www.australianbillycartchampions.com.au.
For enquiries or further information ring the Corowa Visitor Information Centre on 1800 814054 or (02) 60338974, or alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
