2017 Beechwood Billycart Classic | photos, video

IT was a five kilometre dash down the mountain to Beechwood bringing with it a mixture of fear, exhilaration, exhaustion and triumph.

Billycart racers tackled the fast and furious course fuelled by their need for speed at the 2017 Beechwood Billycart Classic.

Hundreds of people filled the village for the race which was won by billycart veterans Paul Kucera and Lucas Campbell in their aero-dynamic mean machine What Tha!

And the recipe for success is simple – you’ve just got to hold on and go fast.

The dynamic duo hit speeds of up to 100kmh on the downhill run to take out the highly contested event for the third consecutive year.
