Elijah Wins Again

The Winners Celebrate Chariots of Fire managed to repeat their success of 2005 and claimed the Connons Shield for the second time yesterday, when they set the fastest time in the 2007 Catterline Cartie Championship. Their winning time of 31.81 seconds beat second placed Tequilla Slammer MkIII by just 0.37 seconds, but a mistake in their third run handed the Constructors Championship to the Bervie Rally All - Stars.
"Best Engineered" was won by Team Riley for the beautifully constructed "Old Mother Gun", comfortably beating the controversial "Deathwish" into second place. Best Decorated went to the fabulously frilly "It's all gone tits up", and The Monboys became the first team to take two prizes away from the Cartie Challenge by winning both the Cartie Sprint at the Gala and being awarded the Champagne Moment for attempting to complete the course despite losing a front wheel, only to literally be brought to a grinding stop when the other front wheel fell off.
A full report will appear in due course, but in the mean time there are some pictures here, including a particularly nice set from Andy Thompson Photography. The full results are here.
