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.
