Teno Alto Wooden Chariot Race



Apparently, this goes on all over the island and there's even a Campeonato Isla de Tenerife de Bajada de Carros de Madera (Island of Tenerife Wooden Charriot Championship), of which the edition in 2012 was the XXXI (31st, by my count). That year, it had taken place in Teno Alto (a tiny hamlet in the municipality of Buenavista del Norte) in early September. Or just watch from the safely of your own armchairBajada being the opposite of subida, which in rally parlance translates to hillclimb, so this is a hilldrop, more or less - the carts apparently being merely gravity and willpower driven. This has surely got to hurt one day. Have you seen that drop at the sides of the road?
