Rules and Regulations Why do we have rules and Regulations???

We want to keep Mower Racing Safe and Good Cheap Family Fun.

Most other forms of motor sport have become unrestricted and racers spend a fortune on engine and chassis modifications and that puts it out of reach of many people. We are trying to keep Mower Racing as cheap as possible and stop it becoming cheque book racing where the teams with the biggest budget ALWAYS WIN.

It’s all about keeping it as safe as possible and good clean fun. These beasts may not look that fast when you’re watching them, but they really are quick and it’s awesome fun doing around 75kph with your bum only a few inches off the dirt.

VicMow strongly encourages new drivers to consult a committee member during the building process of the mower with any queries. For contact information, please refer to the Contact Us page.
