Gentlemen...Start your...Lawnmowers?

Thirty teams took part in a 12 hour endurance lawnmower race in England over the weekend.

The event is said to be the highlight of the lawnmower racing season in the UK.

The winning team completed 406 laps in the 12 hour race.

That's about 348 miles.

Much of the race took part in the dark, adding to the challenge.

Harry Potter actor Warwick Davis had the honor of starting the race.
