Attractions of Konavle – homemade roller cart race

Third Grand Prix of Konavle, a night race of homemade one-seat and two-seat balineras organized by Dvije Rote motorcycle club from Konavle, took place on Sunday in Komaji.

The wacky race in creativity of making carts as well as courage and skills in driving them attracted a large number of contestants and audience.

The racers could come from all over Dubrovnik-Neretva County but had to meet certain propositions – their carts should be originally homemade, their length, height and width could vary depending on personal choice, they had to have a minimum of three metal balineras or ball bearings (rubber ones were not allowed) and protective gear was obligatory (helmet, gloves, knee guards and boots).

All carts had to pass a test of technical control and do the test drive before the race.
