Welcome to our Billy Cart - Race & Show-N-Shine

Another FREE component of our Machines & Macchiatos Triple Shot Super Show. Designed for our young folk, to get their creative hats on, work together with their parents to build a Billy Cart & to have good-old-fashioned fun at our event.

SO how does it work ?

1. Build your Billy cart.

There are loads of Billy Cart plans & ideas on the web. So do a search & get inspired.

Just make sure they adhere to our Safety Standards Guidelines. All carts must meet our safety standards guidelines, which are listed here. On the day of our event, each cart will be checked by our scrutinisers before they are deemed to be safe for racing. Once approved drivers will receive a coloured wrist band & a racing number.

If your cart does not pass our safety standards guidelines, your cart will not be allowed to race. So make sure you build your cart to our Safety Standards Guidelines.

2. Bring it to our event on 24th Nov.

Heres the map of the exact location of the Billy Cart component of our event. The address is - St Ives Showgrounds,  450 Mona Vale Rd, St. Ives NSW 2075.

3. REGISTRATION - 11.am 1.00pm

Once at the St Ives Showgrounds, Head to the registration desk, with an entry form, download here. Or you can fill one in on the day.

Once registered, you will be instructed to head over to our scrutinisers. Once your inspection is complete & your Cart is approved for racing, head to the Marshalling area.

4. racing  - finishes at 1.30pm

Wait for your age bracket to be called up, then you are racing.

All drivers who enter the race must have a parent or guardian to push start them at the beginning of race. The race track in NOT on a  steep hill, its a very gentile slope, thats why its a push start.

Its more about the fun, than going the fastest.

You can race as many times as you like, you can even race in a higher age bracket, but NOT a lower age bracket. EG: If you are in the 6-8 years bracket, you can race in the 9-10 age bracket. Once finished racing, you can enter your cart into the Show & Shine for Billy Carts, there beside the race track.

Once you have finished racing, you have FREE entry into the Main show, in the Jim Watson Arena.
