Peddle-Car Racing!

I've seen it all now. As I type this, my local town is closed off, to allow none other than a peddle car race! Whoopee... What? Yes, a peddle car race. I had visions of those little cars with push rods peddles, like the one I had when I was a child. (yes, the car had been invented then) or later, made out of wooden crates and bits of old bicycles and string, but I was in for a bit of a shock! Some of them were state of the art racers. Gleaming paint, flashes of gold and 'go faster' stripes!! And their drivers, who took turns in relays, were all determined to win, come what may!! With crys of "On your left!" or "On Your right" which was a polite way of saying to the slower racer in front, "Get out the B**** way! I'm coming through!"
The race started off at the traffic lights, zoomed down the high street to turn on a hair pin bend, back up the high street, with hay bales placed down the centre of the 'track' , a sharp left into the next road and then onto the the mini round-about and back towards the traffic lights, a sharp left to continue up the high street, another hair-pin bend and back down the high street past the traffic lights again. One Lap...They're still there now...like little bullets some of them...zooming round and round. There were a few upsets and rebounds off the hay bales, and the odd snapped chain, but all in all, a fun afternoon!
