The Castlemaine Billy Cart Challenge team and Rotary Club of Castlemaine are thrilled to announce a new location for the popular annual fixture.

The race location has moved to the ‘internationally recognised’ billy cart racetrack of Bowden Street, parallel to the Old Castlemaine Gaol now home to the Bromley Collection Museum.

The race has a long history that dates back to 1949. “We are proud of this tradition and that’s why we run the motto ‘Keeping kids on the street since 1949’. We welcome all kinds of billycarts – from backyard tip-shop wonders to pro-level engineered F1 rocket ships. We say bring it on!” Jane said.
