CARTS and calamity took to the roads in Tetbury today for the return of the Wacky Races.

The seventh annual derby, which was organised by Tetbury Lions, sees competitors build their own motor-less racing carts to take on the course which begins at Chipping Street car park along Cirencester Road.

The course then turns right at the Royal Oak via a sharp hairpin which heads towards the Millennium Green onto the home straight towards the finish.
