THE many ways to get from A to B were showcased at a pub event near Banbury at the weekend.
Visitors to the White Horse pub in Wroxton saw an array of vehicles for Saturday’s inaugural event called the Weird and Wonderful Wheels Day.
They included a 1928 Austin Seven, a glider, 1931 steam engine and even a speedy lawnmower.
Peter Farrell – who maintains lawnmowers for a living – says his modified four-wheeler can hit 80mph.
The Tiddington, Oxfordshire, resident said: “I thought I would take along something different.
“It is very much like driving a go-kart but a lot more bumpy. It takes some holding on to.”
Co-organiser Rick Collins said: “It had a bit of everything. This was a real trial and was very successful.”
He brought along a 750 Formula kit car which – through £8,000 of parts – will make 95mph with 1100cc horsepower.
Mr Collins said: “We will definitely be doing something bigger next year.”
