The competition attracts a multitude of oddly interesting outfits, made in almost every possible shape, size and colour .Each year brings with it something completely new and different.
A number of marquees scattered around the track set the scene for much eating, drinking and merriment. A competition for the best test is also an annual highlight, with large corporate companies setting up and inviting the who's who to attract attention to their tents .
The race itself sees a total prize amount of over R30 million being paid out.
