Competitors squealed around the racetrack on Saturday in Forada while spectators packed the stands to watch the Leader Area (LA) Racing Team tear up a hay-lined oval track.


The team of 2- to 3-month-old piglets traveled from their usual stomping grounds at The Bear's Den bar in Motley to take part in the Forada Days festival. LA Racing pigs have their own pit crew and sponsors.
