On Friday, April 8th, we hosted London’s first ever Girl Kart Grand Prix with teams of girls designing, building and racing their very own go kart creations here on the farm. The event was run with London Play and Dare To Be Different.

The teams designed and built some fantastic karts and the culmination of the day were the exhilarating go kart races across the farm. Ex-racing driver Susie Wolff handed out the prize to winning team Kartelle from South East London. Congratulations!


A big thank you to all those who made this event possible, especially all of the amazing volunteers. And for those who missed out, there are plans for another race for girls and boy in August! More details from London Play.

If you would like to put together a team to make a Go-Cart on father’s day, we’ll be providing all the materials and everything is free! 20 teams are involved and will spend the first half of the day building the vehicles, and the second half of the day competing in heats to try and become the Go-Cart Grand Prix champion. If you would like to be involved spaces are very limited so book soon. For bookings email cressida.knapp@mudchute.org.
