The Penn House Gravity Grand Prix will take place on Monday 27 May 2013. Earl and Countess Howe have very kindly allowed this event to take place at Penn House, their family home, and the course will be on the private driveway - about a mile long -leading from the main house to the gatekeepers lodge – and drops about 40 meters over that distance. It winds its way through beautiful woodlands. The most amazing bit is that the 5th Earl Howe had the corners banked to race his Bugatti along it!

Monday 6th May 2013

Tetbury Wacky Races It captured the imagination of the town in 2012 as a debut event and as we promised at the time, Tetbury Lions are absolutely delighted to be able to say that the Soapbox Derby will now feature as an annual event that will take place on the first Bank Holiday Monday in May each year.

For 2013 the event will be held on Monday 6th May so all you adrenaline junkies, engineers and those wanting a family fun day out on your doorstep, make a diary entry now to make sure you do not miss an action packed day. Given the huge reaction we had last year, despite the appalling weather, we will be delivering a much bigger event in 2013 with many more soapboxes promised, a pit area in the Chipping car park that will allow crowd inspection and the time to talk with crews and drivers. There will also be offering a small selection of trade stands so you can plan ahead, be creative and buy what you need to build a super soapbox for the next year and of course the crowd favourite, a selection of pit-babes to keep you informed of proceedings.

Full details and entry forms are availabel from http://tetburywackyraces.co.uk.
