Lawn mower racing is a great family sport, many of our mower racing members are from the same family.

You may remember seeing Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup racing around on ride on lawn mowers at Bathurst, those racing lawn mowers actually belong to TJ Racing who are members of VICMOW   The racing lawn mower used in all the promotional footage from the Vodafone Mower challenge can still be seen looking the same today as it did then, competing in C Class, the A Class racing lawn mower of Marty Saunders is the one that was used by Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup.

Looking for something different for your next fundraiser? Why not consider having VICMOW and their super modified racing lawn mowers come and have a race for you, we can help with race track design and set up and be an event on our own or in conjunction with a show n shine or something else.

Don't be fooled by the look of these racing lawn mowers, they are super modified and have motor bike engines in them. We have four classes starting with the Juniors who run 110cc engines, C Class running up to 200cc motors, B Class run up to 250cc and A Class who run up to 450cc motors.

Australia's first mower race was dreamt up in a small, country pub in Harrietville Victoria in 1988. Five men challenged each other to a race around the local hills of the area after an alcohol-related argument. They chugged up the steep slopes belching smoke from their unmodified Briggs and Strattons , rounded a nominated gum tree, then flew down in "Angel Gear" - Australian outback slang for neutral - to the finish line. "Half the town's 100 people, 300 sheep and 150 dogs were there," according to Brian Ross, six-time president of AROLMRA.

VICMOW is all about keeping it affordable and fun. Our rules are made with this in mind. We race solely to raise funds for the Community and to compete against our mates, (never underestimate the value of bragging rights!)
With expensive machines comes big issues and that's not what we are about.

We want to keep Mower Racing Safe and Good Cheap Family Fun.
Most other forms of motor sport have become unrestricted and racers spend a fortune on engine and chassis modifications and that puts it out of reach of many people. We are keeping mower racing as cheap as possible and stopping it from becoming cheque book racing, where the teams with the biggest budget always wins.

Ask yourself, how many other motorsports are there that the whole family can afford to participate in.The answer sadly is, not many!
                                                            MOWER CONSTRUCTION

One of the first questions we are usually asked is, can I modify the engine and make it go faster. Most newcomers seem to think you need the fastest and most powerful engine to win races. WrongÖYou need to step back a bit and re-think the whole scenario of racing ride on mowers, because until you have driven one of these beasts, you canít appreciate just how fast they really are. Itís no good going fast if you canít steer, handle or stop. All forms of motor sport are dangerous and Mower Racing is probably more so, as you donít have the protection of a roll cage and a car body if something goes wrong at around 75kph. Please put a lot of thought and work into your mower to ensure that itís built properly for your own safety.

Its all about keeping it as safe as possible and Good clean fun, These beasts may not look that fast when youíre watching them, but they really are quick and itís awesome fun doing around 75kph with your bum only a few inches off the dirt.

The secret to going fast is in building a good competitive machine. Learning to drive it competitively and then honing your racing skills.
