    Rocket engine: A hatchback with a jet pack will be a feature of the Luddenham Show.The111th Luddenham Show will be launching, quite literally, on February 21-22.

    The annual country show will be returning again to give people a feel of the “old world atmosphere”.

    “It’s like a time capsule,” president of the Luddenham Show Show Society Wayne Wilmington said.

    “It’s like the country shows from days gone by.”

    The Luddenham Show began in 1891, when locals formed a committee to open up their grounds for all to see.

    The country show has come a long way since then, and new headline attractions will feature alongside the usual favourites.

    The most exciting addition to the country show line-up is a Daihatsu Mira, said Darren Adams, a member of the Luddenham Show society.

    “Now a little old hatchback may not seem all that exciting, but this is no ordinary car,” Mr Adams said.

    “It is actually powered by a jet engine.”

    The Daihatsu Jet Car has been featured on Top Gear Australia and featured at various air shows.

    For those who don’t think attaching a military jet engine on a kei car is hardcore enough, the show will also feature lawn mower racing.

    In between the burning rubber, the weekend will feature horse classes, cattle, sheepdog trials, wood chopping, home brews, and art classes.

    The Luddenham Show will also be holding a special ceremony for the centenary of the Gallipoli landings.

    The Luddenham show is one of few showgrounds in the state still owned by the community, Mr Adams said.

    “As a result the annual show is the … main fundraiser for the upkeep of the grounds.”

    The Luddenham Show will run February 21-22, on the corner of Park Road and Campbell Street, just off the Northern Road.

    Tickets are $15 for adults, and $10 for children under 16 and pensioners.
