Local residents who fancy themselves as the new Lewis Hamilton are being urged to get creative and enter Kemnay Primary’s first ever Cartie Rally before the closing date next month.

Pupils at the school are organising the event - which is due to take place down a 150m stretch of the village’s High Street on May 8 - in association with Aberdeenshire Council, Grampian Police and Kemnay Community Council, and are hoping for a surge of entries before the closing date on April 1.

The rally is open to everyone of school age and upwards to enter, with categories split into P1-3, P4-7, S1-S6 and Adult. Carties must be home-made and push only, meaning no pedals or motors will be accepted. Each category is set to have its own heats and final, with the carties being pushed for the first 50m then freewheeling the last 100m to finish.

There will be prizes for the best designed cartie, best effort, most colourful cartie, fastest time and category winners.
