Go Kart Derby is now re-scheduled to Sunday 17 May Mount Bernard Park 1pm-3pm
Welcome to the Pitstop!
The Pitstop Crew hope to make this event hands-on, hands-dirty, and as hands-together for all you budding DIY Dragsters.
The idea for this event comes from our experience of imagining and making. We hope to empower you to try your hand at making your imaginings become real.
The event is split into 2 parts.
