The 2010 South Canterbury Finance Collingwood Street Trolley Derby:
Saturday, 27 February
89 drivers registered to compete in 69 trolleys
WHK presents - Thomas the Tank Engine
2010 Style Meister This years winner was clear cut for me. The crew from WHK went all-out with their Thomas The Tank Engine trolley, their fantastic top hats and unifoms - right down to name tags!
Although there were a lot of great and beautifully decorated trolleys, I felt no-one went the extra mile like them.
It was so great to see a corporate team take in the spirit of the derby, they were a very approachable crew and I couldn't help thinking to myself that this is just what the derby needs; sponsors with a smile
Nice one, WHK!

The BlueBerryIT Backyard Brilliance Awards trolleys built for less than $200
James Fleet - Batman '09
Prize Pack from BlueBerryIT
- a $50 voucher for Bunnings
- a $50 voucher for the Recycling Centre to help build next years entry
- a remote controlled 10th scale Ferrari car to inspire James to greater heights
Batman 09 To build a cart that not only runs great but looks great all for under $200 is a tough ask. There were some great entries this year and it was a crazy hard choosing a winner.
Bug Eyed was up there as was JJ Racer and of course Thomas the Tank Engine. However, for me the winner - Batman 09 - had everything the others had but with that additional X factor.
What was it?
Well, you've gotta love that helmet; safety, jet-black style and bat ears, irresistible!
Well done James!!
The Britten Award for the most imaginative design built with maximum child input
Team N.I.S. (Nelson Intermediate School)
Recipients of the the inaugural Britten Award Mike Foster (in the Britten hat), Mr T, Tom Somerville (holding the medal), Blair Clough (holding the book for the school library), Cameron Marchbank (wearing the t-shirt) and Jamie Kunzli (holding the certificate)
- Blair Clough, Cameron Marchbank, Jamie Kunzli and Tom Somerville
- Mr T and Mike Foster
It was fantastic to see a school involved in this year's derby. Not only did Mr T help the children get motivated about the project, the students got their hands well and truly dirty sanding into shape the polystrene casing of the trolley.
A special mention must also go out to Mr Foster who was there as support crew for the team but became so much more as he offered his time and enthusiam to event organisers. It is this kind of overall input that we appreciate on the day.
Well done N.I.S. I hope you put a challenge out there to other schools for next years trolley derby.
Francis Lagrutta - Team Novus
The Spirit of the Derby Cup Formerly The Keith Roper Cup: awarded by the OBHC Trolley Derby
Re-presented in 2009 by Colleen and Trevor Carston:
To be awarded annually to a competitor that has The Spirit of the Derby
presented by Gordon Dacombe (on behalf of Trevor Carston)
Francis and his team at Novus are consistently thinking, working and acting for the good of the derby as a whole
After organising and sponsoring the stunt motorcycle riders, it seems that there wasn't quite enough time to get his own two trolleys ready to compete at their full potential. Nevertheless, it was Francis who was on hand to push his arch rival to victory in the Monarchs!
It's this sort of selfless dedication, commitment and sense of fair play that will ensure that the derby remains what is truly a community event
