Who will go down in history as the winner of the inaugural Wilmore Coaster Car Derby? Come out to East Main Street on Saturday, April 18th, to find out.

The races begin at 1:30 p.m. with two divisions: one for home built cars (think “Little Rascals”) and the other for kit cars. Participants, ages 7 and up, will take a thrill ride down the hill of East Main which will be closed to other traffic. Kids of all ages will enjoy this complicated but simple sport which is nearly 100 years old.

Other activities will include a window display of custom made model cars and Match Box Car collections, and a car show. This is a free event, thanks to local sponsorships.

This event is sponsored by the Wilmore Parks & Recreation Department and the Wilmore Community Development Board.
