East Allington Whacky Races, Devon

Saturday 11th May 2013

East Allington Whacky Races Now in it’s 8th year, the East Allington Whacky Races comprises a go-kart or soap-box style race through the village of East Allington, with competitors racing time trial style for the prestigous Luscombe Trophy. A sophisticated timing system will time each of the karts as they race down East Allington’s steep hill, starting at the school, passing the church, the Fortescue Arms and the treacherous Fortescue corner and finishing outside the Village Hall. There are categories for adults as well as children and a variety of fun prizes.

The concept is simple and anyone can enter, all you need is a kart. The kart must have 4 wheels, a proper steering system and brakes and be deemed by the event safety advisor as being safe to race. Competitors must then sign their safety waiver, don their crash helmets and make their way to the top of the hill. The road is transformed into a Silver Stone style race track for the day, with safety barriers, straw bales, advertising banners and bunting lining the route and hundreds of eager spectators cheering the brave racers through the village.

As well as the racing there will be a whole host of stalls and attractions including a bouncy castle, face painting, gladiator style giant cotton bud duels, donkey rides, sports day style races, live music and a feast of food and drinks to keep the crowds sustained throughout the day.
