Pictures from the 2015 Bangalow Billycart Races Last Sunday

The 2015 Bangalow Billycart Derby was on again yesterday and while a little damp at times throughout the day the only downer was the track...
all the way down to the bottom of the the main road ;-)
Here are my snaps of the day.
Before Race
After Race
I never saw this one in any of the events for some reason. ;-)
I noticed a copy of We Need to Talk About Kevin in the news-agent's window.
We Need to Talk About Kevin
Hay everywhere?
Hay everywhere?-) (Men at Work) Even on the billboards of the street.

Colin Hay from Men At Work.
The race commentator's box.
People tend to come out of their shell on race day in Bangalow I noticed. ;-)
Although some can be a little crabby as well. ;-)
What a little R.I.Pper.
Here's the lady that shoots all of those wonderful videos for The Echo newspaper.
I noticed these guys had Amazing Grace while walking down the steep incline. ;-)
Tex Perkins preparing for the celebrity race.
UPDATE: 21st May, 2015.
I forgot to mention that after this race I talked my brother into going to see the new Mad Max movie that coincidentally started the same weekend of the Bangalow Billy-cart Derby.
We caught the 4:20 session, which if you know about the Byron Bay drug culture sounds like a little joke in itself, because pot is a big part of the scene in these parts, so 420 and joints do have a meaning that doesn't go unnoticed to those in the know. ;-)

I have to say though that I didn't like the new Mad Max movie.
I wasn't stoned, but still my eyes glazed over watching this movie.
Give me the old Mad Max movies any day over this new movie.
The ironic thing though is that Steve Bisley from the original  
Mad Max movie was in the celebrity race this time last year, which I wrote about in this post-

It is Trish and one day I just might enter a go-cart and drive down the hill myself.
