Thrills, spills, and billy carts in Corowa

North East Tourist News - - 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 aus­tralian­bil­ly­cartchamps@gmail.com.
