It's that time of year again - the BLMRA 12-hour lawnmower race starts at 8 pm on 1st August at Northchapel, West Sussex!

This is my favourite UK motorsport event of the year and is a real undiscovered gem. Fifty teams of complete lunatics drive flat-out for 12 hours on a rough and always-muddy circuit set out in a West Sussex field. The standard of racing is exceptionally high and you'll see some expert drifting & opposite locking going on as the drivers get in to the groove

This event is a bizarre mix of hard-charging motorsport and charmingly eccentric British madness.. I can't recommend it enough

Press release:
The annual 12 hour lawn mower race takes place in 10 days time at a new venue 3 miles north of Petworth, just outside of Northchapel. After a few agonizing months trying to source a new venue after 20 years in Pulborough, the race was saved by a local farmer at the very last minute and a race against time started to get the event up and running in time, and we did it!!
This years race has 50 teams of three drivers competing for the most prestigious of racing trophies in Motorsport. A strong international flavour can be seen this year with a team from Poland and 3 teams from Luxembourg.
As ever, the race raises money for charity, this years charities are the Royal Agricultural Benelovant Instituition, The Baby Care Unit at Guildford and The Brave Hearts Childrens Charity. The event would not be possible if it wasn’t for the support of many companies both local and international. We are pleased to have the continued support of John Deere, Link Scaffolding, Kelsey Plant amongst others and new ones, Farol of Midhurst and B and T Plant Hire.
With last years record distance narrowly missed, the winning team is back to keep its crown along with 2 other past winners. There are old scores to settle and new faces on the block, the challenge is now on for the greatest event of the year, The Wisborough Green 12 Hour Lawn Mower Race is GO!!!

Update: Derek Bell (a former Lawnmower racer) will be the official guest of honour and starter

He's also a five-time le Mans winner and a racing hero!
