Betfair FanvFan – Challenge 2 – The Ashes Lawnmower Race, Phil Tufnell and Jason Gillespie



possibly our favourite of all the sporting challenges!

Even our normally suave and sophisticated Betfair rivals cant fail to look totally ridiculous sitting on little lawn mowers, racing each other at top speed to the finish line in our Lawn Mower Grand Prix.

Double-century scoring Dizzy might want to bring his winning cricket bat along to help him fend off his rival as they battle it out for the coveted chequered flag — knocking his opponent for six during the race could be the only chance Gillespie has at winning this one due to his cumbersome size in relation to these tiny ride-on mowers.


There is nothing better than the ashes rivalry and the banter that goes with it. Betfair have managed to put together FanvFan featuring Jason Gillespie and Phil Tufnell. 

Fan v Fan brings together English cricketing legend Phil ‘Tuffers’ Tufnell and Aussie fast-bowling giant Jason ‘Dizzy’ Gillespie as rivals competing in a series of special head-to-head challenges. The Betfair Challenges take place over the summer, and see Tuffers and Dizzy battling it out in the name of their respective country’s national pride to see which of them will be crowned Fan v Fan champion.


These guys have completed their first challenge, pedallo racing and are gearing up for the second challenge mower racing. With horse racing and zorbing coming as well as other challenges its going to be an interesting summer!!!

Sit back, relax and enjoy
