The Fairy Kingdom does realise that with all the differing kinds of broomsticks and other flying devices available, there will be many from all the magical species who will want to race their devices and try to get the best out of them.
Certain areas of the Kingdom are set aside for this purpose. These sites are out in the country with plenty of space for flying and the bigger places also have an arena so people can sit and watch. Most, however, watch flying races on FNN. Not only is it safer, it is a lot more comfortable.
Hanastrew will sometimes join in with the races on her own personal broom (as opposed to her work one, it pays not to advertise too much how fast that goes). She usually does reasonably well though Roherum has wondered aloud on FNN if this is because a lot of folk have worked out it probably pays not to get the better of the head of the fairy squad. That comment did not go down well with Hanastrew.
Usual Kingdom Code rules are suspended for racing but the chief one that remains is there must be no deliberate causing of accidents or obstruction of other flyers.
The Code requires all flyers to service their broomsticks and/or other flying devices regularly and to be able to prove that this has been done. The witches have no problem with this, even though they generally don’t like co-operating with the fairy government. Witches want their broomsticks to be instantly responsive to their guidance so see obeying this requirement as very much in their own interests.
Wizards tend not to fly so much but share the same attitude here. Sprites, who use boot power to travel short distances, have to submit their boots to government officials so these are tested out officially. This is not a pleasant task. Sprites are not best known for their personal hygiene. FNN call this test The Great Cheese Factor given that is the predominant smell!
