Barnstaple Pedal Car and Lawn Mower Grand Prix

A mad event that took place along the strand in Barnstaple today. Raising money for the North Devon Children's Hospice and organised by the local college, Petroc, and the local ship building firm, Babcock.

There were a handful of mad pedal cars and a gang of souped up lawn mowers, along with lots of music and fun for kids.

I think the photos probably say it all:

 Piggy's Peddlers in the fun fur pedal car with a curly tail.

 Dick's Dastardly machine from the wacky races series
 The Dastardly machine taking advntage of a lost chain on the Babcock pedal car
 Piggy wizzes (almost) past
 This orange creation was seriously fast!

Muttley takes over on the Dastardly car

And then there were they lawnmowers....................

A hairy cornering moment!

Getting near the end and a few more chances being taken..
The winner

Lap of honour

A little bit of the sound and fury.......

There was a lot of fun and some great live music, whole families and all ages

The live stage in the square outside the museum.

I took loads of photos and I'll load the rest on Flikr

Great fun day and the weather behaved itself too!
