The Bandit Steals the Show

Byron McKibben lifted the Connon's Shield for the fastest run down the brae in the 2012 Catterline Cartie Challenge. Beating off challengers from as far away as Lincolnshire and hi tech gravity racers including two former winners of the SCA Championship, Byron drove The Bandit to victory, snatching the win with Cartie Remedy's final run.

The Bandit has been a regular competitor at Catterline since it first appeared on 2006 and is well suited to the short and tricky course. It has always done well but has never quite made the top spot until now. Unfortunately a cone penalty on their first run put them out of contention for the best aggregate time, which went to Bitter and Twisted, beating Whiplash Trash into second place by just 0.03 seconds.

There were three sidecars competing this year, and two of them set the fastest times on the course. Monkey Business from Belchford in Lincolnshire set the fastest times, with Team Weasel coming close behind.
