I had not heard about the Deathrace contest before reading about it over on the Sidewalk Skateboarding website yesterday but the idea had come to me a few times while joking around with some friends. What a cool format for a contest and a day of skating – boardercrossing on a skateboard through a skatepark! Take a look at the video and get all the info here.
The whole event is going down on Saturday, December 1st at the Blackpool Ramp City skatepark from 6 p.m. till midnight – licensed bar, fancy dress and utter chaos are promised with skaters slamming for the fun of it. Man, this should be done as a series! Here’s how to get to the park:
“We are situated in the Marton area of Blackpool. For those travelling from out of town you need to come along the M55 to the very end ( do not turn off at Junction 4 ). The motorway regulations end and it becomes Yeadon Way ( A5230 ), now turn left at the first roundabout ( with metal artwork in the centre ) within a hundred yards or so you will come to another roundabout take the 2nd exit which is Cropper Road . Ramp City WSA is approx. 200 yards along here on the right.”
