The momentum is building, thanks to the many Clarence Valley billy cart supporters and enthusiasts who have come on board and raised enough money in sponsorship, to stage the Inaugural Jacaranda Billy Cart Derby.
The challenge is on.
It’s time for the community to throw themselves into the construction of their ‘state of the art – cart’ which will battle it out for the converted ‘King of the Mountain’, title.
Gone are the days of Holden or Ford, this is serious business; as the challenge is put out there for mechanic versus mechanic and truckie versus truckie, to come up with their own ‘super’ machine.
This event is not just limited to the serious contenders however.
There are opportunities out there for businesses to challenge businesses and schools to challenge schools – and there is even an open section, for the ‘big kids’ at heart.
• Schools Challenge (different age groups)
• Novelty – decorative carts eg create your own Bat Mobile
• Battle of the Businesses
• Motor Mechanics and Truckie Challenge – for the fastest billy cart on South Hill
• Open section – for the big kids at heart
Come on Clarence Valley, this is an event not to be missed.
The Jacaranda Billy Cart Derby 2016, will be held in Tyson Street, South Grafton on Saturday, November 5.
