Drivers revved their engines at the start of a strange 12-hour race. But there’s a twist. They’re racing on lawnmowers and it takes place annually in an English village. 

Pit crews prepared to refuel the teams of three drivers that raced around the 1.6km circuit. Running from 8 am to 8 pm in Five Oaks, West Sussex. 

“The 12-hour lawnmower race is legendary amongst petrol heads who want the thrill of racing at an affordable cost. Since the race runs from 8 pm to 8 am through the night this is no walk in the park!

“Teams have three drivers who do stints around the bumpy circuit whilst the pit crew sort refueling and breakdowns, of which there are many. The circuit length was 1.575 km and the race was started with a Le Mans-style running start.” 

The winning team, named Best Western, completed 384 laps in the time allowed.
