15 junior drivers raced on the night with 13 of these drivers being female junior drivers, racing in Teal pants and wearing them proudly. With each pony having three races seen a clean sweep on the night for the girls with them placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in every race.

In between racing their ponies, the girls and boys of the club sold cupcakes, wristbands, Hygain teal hats, and raffle tickets - raising money and awareness on behalf of WomenCan.
