Ready, Steady, Mow - Le Mans 4 hour Lawn Mower Endurance Race
Their 2020 race season was wiped out owning to the pandemic and their blue ribboned event the World famous 12-hour race was cancelled for the second time in as many years.
So, a four hour endurance race was always going to be a well attended event for Britain’s lawnmower racers.
The Red Bull’s, Honda’s of this sport have names more often associated with common garden machinery: Atco, Webb and Westwood's.
For obvious safety reasons all the blades are removed for the mowers, they are crazy, but, not that crazy!.
There are no team orders to be found here and mowers race on an even ‘playing field’ in that the engines are only allowed minor modifications.
After 4-hours of racing around a dusty field number 44, Team ‘Who’s going Commando’ took top honours.
