This adorable pedal car race turns into chaos!

In the United Kingdom, a pedal car race was organized for children. Highly motivated, they engaged in a savage battle.

From September 8 to 10, England hosted the Goodwood Revival, like every year since 1998. The spirit of this festival has not changed: vintage cars come to compete for three days on the Goodwood circuit. This is an unexpected opportunity to see or drive vehicles dating from the 1940s to 1960s.

Among the car races organized on this circuit, we should mention the Lavant Cup, in which Ferrari 250 GTOs took part. In short, it was a true concentration of cars as rare as they were luxurious. A special mention must be made concerning another more unusual and unusual race: la Settrington Cup 2023which could be considered the most adorable car competition in the world.

The Settrington Cup, a pedal car race for children

The Settrington Cup has the particularity of only allowing children to compete in pedal cars. Not just any ones, since these are models of theAustin J40. This pedal machine looks like a reproduction of an old car in miniature version. Which gave a somewhat vintage feel to the competition.

So, 50 children set off on the track of the Goodwood circuit in the manner of the old departures of the 24 hours of Le Mans. But instead of using a conventional engine, these children pushed their carts using the power of their legs and the help of pedals. The track measuring more than 200 meters, the distance could seem long. Nevertheless, the young runners showed great determination.

Real chaos on the track

Ironically, the method used for the start of this race is now banned for safety reasons at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The fact that runners set off on the track on foot to reach their cars has indeed created some dramatic accidents in the past. However, the pedal cars do not go as fast as the Le Mans cars. THE risk of accident thus finds itself greatly diminished.

This did not prevent, as noted by the media Carbuzzchildren to indulge in a wild race. They were obviously very motivated and the lead of the race changed several times. In the end, the leader even almost got caught at the finish line. Several accidents also took place on the circuit, as children crashed into them. In short, this seemingly innocent race turned into real chaos. The commentator himself had a little difficulty following!
