Billycarts at Bathurst




Once a year in springtime, a drove of rowdy young men descend on a 100 acre property in Sofala, NSW. They’ve spent the winter engineering creative carts to race in the annual Yellow Box Spring Carnival: a billycart derby. Hurtling down the kilometre-long dirt drive in their homemade hero-wagons these guys deserve the “110% stamp of commitment” inked on their foreheads.

And a 70% Foolhsrdy stamped immediately underneath. Those billy carts can go, and bare legs/arms are not proof against the road.
