Balloon Race

Details of the 2022 balloon race will be announced later. In the meantime you can view the ecoracing website here


The result of the 2021 Kirtlington Balloon Race can now be revealed.

1st Chris Blackwell – 164.024km – Upupandaway4 – wins £100
2nd Lorna Straker – 160.649km – My Balloon – wins £50
3rd Jimmy Gamage – 158.543km – Gammage 3 – wins £25

We are indebted to Park Farm Kirtlington for their very generous sponsorship of our first eco-friendly balloon race.
Many people took part and it is something that we will repeat this year….. with a race taking place later than the day after the Fete!
Incidentally if you are impressed with the length that the winning balloon travelled spare a thought for the owner of the balloon that came last as that one went only 1.0732km!
