It's not all about the racing, this is also a fantastic day out for the family with plenty to see and do.
The main purpose of the event is to raise funds for our chosen beneficiaries, The Pilgims Hospice, Ashford and Kaleidoscope Childcare, Aldington
The box carts often travel in excess of 40mph, therefore we insist that spectators remain behind the taped area (typically on the pavement).
The Marshalls volunteer for spectator and driver safety. If you are asked to move somewhere else or not to do something, please respect that request.
