IS it a bird? Is it a plane? It is a high-speed trolley taking to the track . . .

The infamous and popular Global Leadership Academy (GLA) Trolley Pro is set to return on May 5 . . . affording local businesses the opportunity to show off their flair for design and racing skills, while helping to raise funds for the school.

The annual adrenaline-packed event involves Kouga businesses and GLA learners racing through the parking area at Fountains Mall in Jeffrreys Bat in a unique non-motorised racing event.

Designs from the 2017 event included everything from a bulldozer, a shell, a dog bowl, a portable toilet, and a pink milk bottle, to a magical dragon.

With a challenging racetrack, the competition will see a total of 16 teams competing.

Some spots have already been grabbed at a cost of R5 000 each. The entry fee will ensure businesses’ participation in this year’s event, as well as cover all expenses related to trolley decoration done by the grade representing that specific enterprise.

Additional expenses like marketing T-shirts, gazebos and flags on the day of the race, is for the pocket of the sponsoring company.

The names of the competing companies will be announced in the Kouga Express of April 19, while the completed trollies will be exhibited at Fountains Mall from April 22 to May 4.

The public can then vote for their favourite trolley via an SMS competition line. A photo of each trolley with the company’s logo will be placed on the Kouga Express website during the voting period.

The class of the winning trolley will receive a R1 000 voucher from Fountains Mall.

The results, as well as photos of the event, will be published in the Kouga Express of May 10.
