Mower group burns turf for charity

MOWER racing enthusiasts burned around the Bundy Turfburners grounds yesterday. The day aimed to raise more than $1500 for a children’s charity.

The unique sport gained plenty of welcomed visitors with a constant stream of locals watching the races.

Bundy Turfburners event organiser Harry Samberson said the event had started years ago and the popularity was growing.

“There are a few blokes that spend heaps of money, but it’s all about getting a cheap mower and doing it up for some fun,” Mr Samberson said.

The event had riders as young as 14 enter, along with some women’s races.
