There was no racing in 2009 due to rain.

Saturday the 28th February turned out to be a very wet day and unfortunately the South Canterbury Finance 2009 Trolley Derby was cancelled.

96 drivers had registered to compete in 78 trolleys.

 

2009 Kids Design Challenge Winners

Nippers: Louis Rowell Williams with his design for a Submarine trolley.

Zoomers:  Cassandra Cotton with Barelnator

Sprinters:  Corbin Blackbourn with his design for The  Inferno Dragon Racer.

 

After all the efforts of the drivers and supporters to get their trolleys ready for Derby Day, a replacement day of racing was organised in Marsden Valley on Sunday 5 April 2009.  At 30 second intervals a single trolley made a run down Marsden Valley Road and raced gainst the clock to reach the finish line approximately 1.6km from the top.
