The event, hosted yesterday, saw more than 70 teams taking part from around the world, with two racers travelling from America and top speeds reaching 43mph.
“There are no engines - they are propelled down the hill just using the force of gravity,” said organiser James Pickard of Pickard Events. “We’ve had a full collection - ones that have been built in backyards and others that made up using the latest engineering technology, building the faster machines they can muster.
“It’s been brilliant - we think we’ve had over 2,000 people through the gates. We’re still totting up the totals but we think around £10,000 has been raised for various charities including Candlelighters and the Prince’s Trust.”
