Gallery: Framlingham’s madcap go-kart race
GO-KARTS of all shapes and sizes took part in a madcap race in Framlingham on Sunday.
The contest was held for the fourth successive years and was hailed as “a fabulous success” in the warm sunshine.
There were 41 entries into the race, in three categories: adults, secondary school children and primary school children. All the go-karts were homemade.
The younger children took on a shorter racetrack, starting on the Market Hill and ending on Bridge Street, while the older children and adults began in Church Street and careered around the town centre.
The event was organised by the town council and was compered by Spadge Hopkins, one of the chief organisers.
