Our Upcoming Competitions
Win a cart and entry to the 2024 Mt Helena Race
Support our organisation and go in the draw to win an amazing prize!
HBCI is a not for profit, membership based organization run by volunteers.
Founded on the basis of a Billy Cart Festival organized by the Mount Helena Residents and Ratepayers Assn – it now has its own identity with the objective of encouraging other communities to stage similar events. This could be a series of events culminating in the Grand Prix in Mount Helena (the home to the resurgence in Billy Cart racing) on the last Sunday of October every year.
What was old is suddenly new again!
Billy Carts bring back many memories of simple outdoor fun with thrills and spills for everyone involved. In our modern world of electronic devices there is a certain appeal to revisit “old fashioned” activities, yet those activities do need to provide a little more protection for the participants than the old fashioned carts with their string steering.
Thinking of taking part?
We encourage everyone to join in & have fun.
We suggest that you:
- Check out the Video Clip from the 2019 Mount Helena Classic event
- Interested? then check out Pinterest for some inspiration for your very own, unique cart.
- We take safety very seriously so check out our position on safety
- Read the Rules and Regulations, General Building Notes & Self Assessment Checklist before you Register to compete
This is a great opportunity to have fun both for yourself and your kids

It was a hoot and the community absolutely loved it. 2019 badged as the Mount Helena Classic it all ran like a well-oiled machine with around 75 competitors. With 98% satisfaction ratings on the post event survey, how good is that!
