Event Calendar

Mostyn Street, Castlemaine

Start: Sat 14th Oct. 9 a.m. | End: Sat 14th Oct. 5 p.m.

In the 90’s the race was on again with fresh legs and a love for all things billy cart. These events were held and loved by the community until the last race in 2003. Let’s blame reality TV for this. People still share the stories of these races like they happened yesterday.

We pay homage and full respect to those who have done the hard yards in the past. Those who have come before us have set the scene for a town that loves and embraces billy cart racing.

In 2017, on October 14 we will see the revival of this classic event as the Castlemaine Billy Cart Challenge.

This time as a fundraising opportunity for a local suicide awareness and prevention group known as ELM-Every Life Matters.
