It’s high octane thrills as Cundall Manor School pupils take on the annual Go-Kart race.
The North Yorkshire school, based near Topcliffe, North Yorkshire, has held the event for a decade and this year saw a range of innovative entries from its pupils including a modified bath-tub, a barrel and many more alongside more traditional entries.
This year saw 34 entrants tackle the hill route with Hattie and Rebecca coming out on top after posting a blistering time of 11.29 secs in their vehicle, the BFF Barrel.
The pair faced tough competition from Henry in his flying carpet Go-Kart and last year’s winner, Michael with his pyrotechnic kart, Don’t Mind.
Joint Head, John Sample, declared the winners. He said: “The event is a great way to bring the community together and have some fun.”
“The fact that we always have so many entries is testament to how much the parents and children love the event.”
Hundreds of parents, friends and family, cheered on the competitors as they descended the hill with a varying degree of success.
Marketing Manager, Paul Swalwell, added: “The event always attracts some fantastically innovate entries and this year was no exception. We even had an extra-special treat from last year’s winner Michael who added a bit of pyrotechnic theatre to his vehicle.”
“A huge well done to all our pupils and parents who helped make the day so entertaining and special.”
