Barnstaple Grand Prix – Lawnmower Racing and Fancy Dress

Let Monaco keep their F1 Grand Prix because in the sleepy town of Barnstaple, Devon there is a yearly event with more prestige, danger and excitement than any yacht fraught waters in the South of France could ever offer. We are of course talking about the Barnstaple Grand Prix where pedal bikes, scooters, skateboards and the grand finale lawnmowers are raced through the streets by fancy dress clad aficionados.

This year’s Grand Prix took place last Sunday and saw a collection of the UK’s finest lawnmower racers gather from across the UK in Barnstaple in their souped-up grass cutting machines. The event was organized by Petroc College and BIDBarnstaple as they aimed to raise as much money as possible in aid of Children’s Hospice South West.
