It’s Wacky Races!

HUNDREDS descended upon Queen Elizabeth’s High School in Gainsborough to enjoy some high speed fun as the Rotary Club held their first Pedal Car Grand Prix.

The charity event saw teams from around the region dress up and race around the track as families cheered on and enjoyed a variety of stalls and a classic car display.

Even TV favourite The Stig was in attendance to burn some rubber complete with Formula One-style commentary and pit-stops.

“We had a fantastic day,” said Rotary Club president Julian Needham from Aegir Electronics. “There was so much support from across the community.”

“This year was all about introducing the event to the town and putting it on the map while raising some money for charity - and we’re ready to do it all again next year.”

He continued: “Everyone had a really good time and it was just a great family day out.”

The prize for best-dressed team went to North End Garage from Marton, while the most amount of laps went to Rilmac Scaffolding from Lincoln and Aegir Electronics took home the prize for fastest lap.
