Join us for a high-energy, fun and engaging workshop where you get to make your own car or truck and race it!

Scrappy Races is a brilliant family-friendly workshop where children can build an awesome wooden car and have loads of fun competing in a series of races down our giant track.

Kids can choose from one of four racers to build before customising their car to be a one of a kind super-fast racer.  We'll get them working as part of the Ash & Co pit crew to keep scores, and load the cars onto the track!

Every child gets to start a race and send the cars flying down the track by activating the mechanical start gate too.  

Woodwork has never been this fun!

Here's the lowdown:

• Book online for £24.95 per bench space

How it works

On arrival at the workshop you will be given a Pit Pass with your unique race car number. You will make your custom wooden car from a choice of components with lots of fun stickers to decorate with. You'll get to have a go with a variety of hand tools including an electric screwdriver to attach the wheels.

Once the all important car number is on, it’s race time! 

Kids (and grown-ups!) will be jumping for joy when the countdown starts and every competitor has a turn to release the cars and start the race.

Everyone is encouraged to take part throughout the racing by either joining the pit crew or assisting with the score board team.

Competitors are given points for 1st or 2nd place in each race and points are added up at the end to find the top three overall. 

The workshop is great for all abilities and enjoyable for everyone aged 5 to 95! Tickets for racers under the age of 14 include a free adult, and children can work with their grown-up as a team if you wish for a really fun way to spend quality time together. 

Numbers are limited to a maximum of 16 children in the workshop and the event will last approximately 1.5 hours depending on the final number of competitors.


Please note, a parent or carer must assist and accompany children in the workshop at all times. 

Parent helpers:
Depending on the age of the children, parent helpers are required in the following ratios:
Age 5 - 6 = 1 adult per child
Age 7 - 9 = 1 adult per two or three children 
Age 10 and up = 1 adult per three or four children

Thanks for today it was excellent!

The kids had a great time. They loved their little car's they made and really enjoyed the racing.

Thank you for a fantastic experience at the workshop.

From the professional invitations and welcome pack to the warm, fun and memorable party itself: Adults and kids enjoyed themselves in equal measure. There were a few guests who were new to the workshop too and I’m sure they’ll be back after such a brilliant day.

Hi Helen, Thank you for such wonderful feedback, it's greatly appreciated and brilliant to hear we are heading in the right direction
