Pedal Car Racers!

We are delighted to inform you that the annual Australian Pedal Car Grand Prix will be run over a 1.1km course through the streets of Coleraine on Saturday 6th October 2018 between 2pm and 4pm.

Scrutineering will take place between 12noon and 1pm. It is important that when you enter Coleraine from the Hamilton end (west), please turn right into Read Street and then turn left into Turnbull Street and proceed up to the fire brigade running track to unload your pedal car ready for scrutineering. A street parade of vehicles will follow, giving the public a chance to view each vehicle and vote for the best decorated car. The winning team will be presented with the Thomas Hull Trophy.

Junior and Senior teams must ensure a parent or guardian countersigns the second page of the Terms and Conditions form. All forms and entry fees must be submitted by 21st September 2018 to avoid the $50 late entry penalty fee.

This event is a fundraiser for Coleraine and district local community groups. Please download the sponsorship form to help us raise money for these great organisations. Sponsorship is vital for the Australian Pedal Car Grand Prix, so please talk to everyone who might be interested in sponsoring this event. A special award will be presented to the team with the highest sponsorship total.

What’s new in 2018? The “Hot Lap”!

For the 2018 race, the committee have decided to add an exciting new section at the very start of the race program called the “Hot Lap”. Here is the way it works: Beginning at 1 pm sharp, all participant teams are invited to nominate one driver and one pusher to complete one circuit of the track. The fastest time recorded wins the cash prize. This race will be conducted within the same categories as the main race ie junior,senior and open however the junior section may be run in two groups depending on the design of the cars. The cash prize will be $50 for each category. Each individual car will be sent off at 2 minute intervals within their group and there will be about 8 minutes before the next group commences their race.

Entry fees for the “Hot Lap” are included in the main race entry fee.
