MAKE sure you have the 2014 Wonthaggi Human Powered Grand Prix marked in your diary.
It looks a very big weekend on Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23 when local country, Victorian and interstate teams get together for the 17th Annual 2014 Wonthaggi Human Powered Grand Prix at the Wonthaggi Recreation Reserve’s 1.3km race track.
With predictions of over 90 teams and 3000 people coming to the event over its three-day period, it has grown to be one of the biggest events in the Bass Coast Shire.
The event is well known amongst locals and enthusiasts as a thrilling weekend not to be missed and is always well supported by the community.
On Saturday, March 23, come early to watch the practice sessions starting at 9.15am before the main race starts at noon.
Running for 24 hours non-stop, the Human Powered Grand Prix continues with big crowds and thrills from start to finish.
Watch the corners as weary riders race to make up time before finishing at noon Sunday.
There’ll be business and community displays and a great new range of catered food and coffee.
Primary and secondary school teams design and build their own recumbent vehicles and come from all over eastern Australia to be there.
Teams also include many former school team riders who just want to keep racing after they’ve left their school years behind.
Entry to race is free for spectators and all are welcome. Teams pay an entry fee.
With a number of sponsorship options available, organisers will tailor something for your business.
