Billy Cart Grand Prix Rolls into Cooly

Posted on Friday, May 04, 2018

A new event is hitting the streets at this year’s Cooly Rocks On™. The Billy Cart Grand Prix will see local school groups and enthusiasts from around the country slide down Boundary Street on Billy Carts over two big weekends in June. 

Heats will take place on Saturday 2 June, the weekend prior to the start of Cooly Rocks On™, from 9am – 3pm. Finals will then take over the town on Sunday 10 June – the final day of the festival – between 11am and 12pm, where spectators can line the street to cheer on the action.

Local school students will also be joined by enthusiasts from the national Billy Cart series who will be bringing their own carts to compete in the downhill race.

This fun new event is sure to be a crowd favourite as part of the five day nostalgia festival to be held from 6 – 10 June, 2018.
