Race Rules.
A Fun Family Day Out

Despite the awful weather forecast, another very successful Whacky Races went ahead and, although it was raining elsewhere, the sun shone on East Allington and hundreds of people came to the village to cheer on the racers and

enjoy the day. The racing was very exciting. We had a crash in the 1st round with "Made from Scratch" sliding out at Fortescue Corner to gasps from the crowd. Thankfully, nobody was hurt, but that was the last run for driver Paul Redburne and his crumpled kart. We had some great looking karts again. Notably "Yummy Mummy" featuring a

real ancient Egyptian mummy who rose up from her racing tomb to freak out the spectators as she raced down the hill, although the winner of the best looking kart competition was the "The Big Cheese" built and driven by Phil and Harry Way in their mouse costumes. The excitement continued all the way to the final when the multiple past

winner and fastest qualifier "Drive By", driven by Julian Meek, had a problem at the start which allowed his brother David Meek in "Silver Streak" to snatch victory and be crowned Whacky Races Champion 2014. Harry Way from Bantham won the kids race in "The Big Cheese" There were nineteen karts in all who entered this year. All amazing in

their own way. See the Results page for the the full results. There was lots of great food and stalls in the field and "The Mannequins" rocked at The Village Hall in the evening. Lots of money was raised for local groups and charities. Can't wait ‘till next year!
