PENELOPE Pitstop, eat your heart out – Hampshire residents are set to create their own wacky races!

Adrenaline junkies have been busy building their own non-powered go-karts in preparation for the races in Kings Worthy on June 29.

It is being put on by local charity A Better Life, which works with people in the UK and Mongolia who are in troubled or desperate circumstances.

Races will run from 2pm until 4.30pm at Race Hill, in Meadow Field, opposite the King Charles pub in Springvale Road.
