Yes, it is good fun.
in NZ is a popular spectator sport which is raced in different classes
all the way up to corporates who take it pretty seriously! We are a corporate class racer and with ST.John Ambulance being a charitable organization, it forms part of our fund-raising activities. I should add that I'm only the designer/builder - there is an idiot paramedic in St.John with no brain who hurtles down the hill in that thing. Last year we came 2nd overall in very close racing
, but St.John doesn't really care about placings just so long as we beat our arch rivals, Fire Brigade and police. With such a slender margin I am reluctant to put a noise-maker on the wheels (friction) but do recall
some sort of ramjet whistle affair that I would like to mount on the fin. Scare the crap out of the opposition.
