Fam­i­lies have fun bond­ing at town’s first derby

Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

Dampier fam­i­lies were only too keen to get off and racing at the in­au­gu­ral Dampier Billy Cart Derby last Satur­day.

There was hardly a dull mo­ment as more than 50 rac­ers took to the hill from the Shell servo to the palms.

The event was billed as a chance for fam­i­lies to bond, and par­ents worked with sons and daugh­ters in the pit lane to en­sure their speed ma­chines were up for the chal­lenge.

Carter Arm­strong won in the in­ter­me­di­ate (10-15-yearolds) cat­e­gory, col­lect­ing his sec­ond Pil­bara billy cart ti­tle this year af­ter also win­ning the 2016 Mar­ble Bar Grand Prix.

Dusty Fowler was the fastest ju­nior (six to nine-year-olds) and Jen McKen­zie won the com­pet­i­tive se­niors (over-16s) di­vi­sion.
