One of two Row­lands fam­ily teams throw them­selves into the ac­tion dur­ing the first ever Back­pad­dock Lakes Home­made raft race at Back­pad­dock Lakes near Taka­pau, part of Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay Spring Fling.

The Spring Fling con­tin­ues this week­end with the Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay Fast ‘n’ Fu­ri­ous Trol­ley Derby at Puke­ora Hill, Waipuku­rau.

This event had its in­cep­tion last year, and spec­ta­tors and rac­ers alike en­joyed a great day’s rac­ing, with many vow­ing they would be back.

The twist­ing 1.3km track pro­vides chal­lenges for the con­tes­tants and en­ter­tain­ment for the on­look­ers.

There are view­points along the track, and food and cof­fee stalls at ei­ther end of the track.

The rac­ing ac­tion starts at 9am on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27.
