How to Win!
The overall Wacky Racers championship will be won through a POINT-ALLOCATION SYSTEM. Points will be allocated based on the following criteria:
The level of participation in the four heats in the billycart calendar (see The Heats below). Teams can participate in some or all events, with point allocated to each event. The more you attend, the more points you get!
2. General Engagement
Other points are allocated based on the following criteria:
- Team effort: how well did all the team members work together (builders, drivers, decorators, advertisers etc)
- Presentation of billycart (if you build your own)
- Team uniforms/costumes (go “Wacky!)
- Finishing positions in each race
- Level of local community sponsorship/involvement Link to Sponsorship Form coming soon!
Points will be given to teams that race in these events. The more you attend, the higher your points score!

This is the third year of Wacky Racers in the Southern Downs, bringing competitors from as far as the sunshine coast, Toowoomba, Koyogle, Ballandeen and other areas.

For accommodation, you cannot go past Eve’s Pitstop Lodge.
