The Sydney Morning Herald shows that Billy cart derby’s are still popular for some –
IT STARTED with a plaintive cry on the letters page: “When was the last time anyone saw two kids build and then play with a billycart?” asked Ray Smith of Blacktown on Wednesday.

The response was immediate and overwhelming – it seems the ancient art of nailing old pram wheels to timber planks and careering down neighbourhood hills is not dead.
“Ray Smith was evidently nowhere near Springwood Public School last Wednesday to witness their annual Billycart Derby,” sniffed Carolyn Wivell.
