The latest news about the British Pedal Car Grand Prix, and more!
Welcome to the Press Room of the British Pedal Car Grand Prix, where we aim to bring you all of the information you need about the event to bring it to your readers.
About the Event
The British Pedal Car Grand Prix is a high speed, high fun race event based in the heart of Ringwood, where teams of daredevils race their pedal powered hot-rods around a street circuit though our beautiful Hampshire market town. Originally founded in 1987 by Ringwood & District Round Table after being inspired by the Pedal Car Races held in our twin-town of Pont-Audemer in Normandy, we’re now in our 36th year of holding the event.
The 2023 event is set for Sunday 9th July and is a two hour endurance race around the closed off streets of Ringwood town centre. The pedal cars assemble in the Furlong Centre from 10.00am, and are displayed there for the morning, prior to the parade laps from 2.30pm, with the race starting at 3.00pm. Spectators are able to walk around the whole course to watch the race from various different vantage points, joined by crowds recently in excess of 3000 people.
About the Organisers
The event is organised by Ringwood & District Round Table, plus a number of friends who keep the event going throughout Round Table’s wilderness years.
Ringwood & District Round Table are a voluntary group of local young men (Aged between 18 & 45) who got bored of taking from society, or from shying away from community work for fear of not fitting in, and decided instead to do more for our local community, whether that is helping out at a Carol Concert, hosting a charity Beer Festival, or helping a local sports team with fundraising for equipment. Whatever we’re doing, whether it’s on a night out as a group or raising money for a cause, the aim is simple – Have Fun & Do More!
