The STEAM ENGINE SLOW RACE is a great S L O W spectacle – in which traction engine and steamrollers out slow each other. The flywheel on the engine must keep rotating – this is a test of the operators skills. Held in the Lighthorse demonstration area at 3.30 every day after the grand parade.

STEAM ENGINE BARREL race is a new event. How quickly can these giant steam marvels navigate the course. Held in the Lighthorse demonstration area after the Slow race.
