Trolley Derby Competitor Speeds to National Finals
The Annual North Shore Trolley Derby run by the Rotary Club of Northcote Glenfield was held down Kaipataki Road in Glenfield last Saturday. Glenfield College had one trolley entry this year thanks to Mr Choromanski in the Technology Department and four drivers. One driver, Ryan Dimas, came fourth out of sixteen and heads off to the national finals on April 7th. All cars are standard and are rigorously checked that they comply. Cars are weighted to ensure equal loadings with drivers aboard so that the winner is truly the best driver who holds a steady line and has the best running gear. Our students also acted as Pit Crew, Marshalls and workers at the finish, loading the trolleys on to trucks for the journey back up the hill.
