UK lawn mower race: Luxembourg team claim victory in the greatest show on turf

A team from Luxembourg fought off 42 others to claim victory in Britain's lawnmower race on Sunday, a 12-hour competition that pits modified grass cutters against each other in a competition that runs through the night.

"Les' Lux Pussies" became the first overseas team to win the annual endurance race in the English village of Five Oaks, West Sussex, southern England over the weekend, after completing 430 laps of the circuit.

The winning trio was Bob Koedinger, Christian Kaiser and Jeff Wilmes in a race that was first imagined at a meeting in a pub in 1973 when motorsports fans wanted a sport that would be competitive, fun and cheap.
