A new Babbage sport?

After hearing about Mr. Lighthouse’s bout of sporting fever across the Fells I remembered something that may be of interest to Babbagers.

Auto Polo.

Played at Coney Island in 1913.

I think with some modified Go-Devils this could become a new form of physical harm winter sport!

    That looks nicely insane. Is it the ancestor of wheelchair rugby (also known as murderball) ?

    im in! maybe do it as part of the founders celebrations or oiling festival. instead of a ball how about a ticking bomb?

    I still contend that any proper Babbage sport would involve explosives and/or fire.
