If you love driving and like rallying, supercar days and motor racing, but are looking for a new twist, something a little different, then get a load of these Wacky Racers.
Available only at Northampton International Raceway this zany far out four-wheel caper combines the power of the petrol engine with the comfort of furniture to bring you such delights as the 87 mph sofa, the petrol driven office, the double decker car where the driver on top steers and the one underneath operates the pedals, and the motorised bed. Does this sound daft enough for you? Well take our word for it, this rally driving experience with a difference (it’s cars Jim, but not as we know them!! – just loads of motorised furniture) will have you laughing till you split your sides.
How much is the Wacky Racers experience?

Wacky racers review
You may have seen the motorised sofa on Top Gear, in which case you’ll know what to expect. If you’ve not seen it, you sit on a sofa that then is driven off round the racetrack at amazing speeds.
Then you get to sit behind the desk in the motorised office, followed by playing the part of upstairs or downstairs driver in the double-decker car which needs both drivers to be in agreement, as one operates the pedals and the other one the steering wheel. Believe us, it’s even more confusing than it sounds.
The event that proves the highlight for most people is being tucked up under the duvet of a great big bed and taken on a five mile ride round the local roads, waving to the locals as you pass by.
If this won’t get you laughing, we don’t know what will.
A word of caution though: don’t expect to drive all the furniture yourself. Driving furniture is an acquired skill so for a lot of the time you’ll be driven by an expert who knows what he’s doing – handling a sofa at speed isn’t something you learn in a few minutes, so left to your own devices you wouldn’t get up much speed at all and the whole day is actually more fun and more enjoyable because you’re safely in the hands of an expert.
If you fancy checking out the petrol driven sofa, then have a look at this video where it’s demonstrated by the man who designed and built it, Edd China.
