Following the success of the Raft Race in recent years, Ellon is hosting its first Pedal Car Championship in the summer of 2010. The streets will be closed off to make way for a fun day of racing where teams will compete in a series of races to raise money for their chosen charities.

This is a race for human powered pedal vehicles so your gravity powered racer will probably not do very well without a few modifications, but if you're interested and have enough time to fit some gears and pedals it should be a fun day out.
