The International Barbecue Network will be coordinating a competition at Cartmel to coincide with the races.
Cartmel's BBQ Racedays will take on an even more important meaning to a number of racegoers this year as contestants battle it out in a BBQ competition organised by the International BBQ Network (IBQN).
The winners of the Pit Masters Series Final will qualify for the Jack Daniels Challenge in the USA - and will receive funding towards the once in a lifetime trip. To join the IBQN and enter the contest, follow the link below.
Racegoers who are serious about their BBQs, but not quite serious enough to stay up all night, can enter the "lighter" version called "Ready Steady Q" in which contestants are given a box of mystery ingredients from which to produce a quick BBQ meal.
Come and join in the BBQ fun at the July racemeeting.
Sir Tom Jones will be performing live at Cartmel Races on Friday 30th June, in the evening following racing in the afternoon. Tickets for the event, including camping packages, will be available online from 9.00am on Monday 6th March.
