2014 Collingwood Street Trolley Derby

David Letsche Photography was at the 2014 Collingwood Street Trolley Derby and captured all the action, pre race nerves, cool trollies, close shaves and examples of kiwi “no.8 wire” engineering at it’s best.

Photos are now available via the link below.  Please remember to purchase the commercial license option if you are getting the photo for business purposes.  (Price includes GST and receipt is available on request.)

But here are some images from 2012….

Is it a formula 1 car, nope, a converted mussel buoy.

The race is on down Collingwood St.

Collingwood St provides the perfect gallery for spectators to watch the racing.

This is a bit of a squeeze.

Speeding in a 50 zone is encouraged, but only for the trollies!

“Excuse me, but I recorded you doing 70kph in a 50kph zone, well done mate!!”

Plus the occasional spill

Collingwood St Derby, always something exciting going on.

Hope the weather stays fine for the racing on Saturday.
