Almost 80 youngsters raced to half-term Adventur Karting sessions organised by the local Safer Neighbourhood policing teams in Poolsbrook and Duckmanton.
The events were set up to offer youngsters something to do during the school holiday and were paid for by local county councillors.
Forty-seven youngsters came along to the Poolsbrook session and 32 attended the event at Duckmanton Miners Welfare, both which took place on Monday, April 10.
Competitions were held at each event, and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue came along to Poolsbrook with an engine for the youngsters to look around.
At Poolsbrook, Ethan Barton (8) won the first prize, a trophy, Bradley Gillings (12) came second and picked up an Easter egg and Reece Flett (17) came third and got a chocolate bar.
At Duckmanton, Misty Kelly (12) won the first prize, a trophy, Alexia Wheelwright (7) came second and picked up an Easter egg and Aaron Heels (11) came third and got a chocolate bar.
PCSO Janis Naylor said: "We’ve now managed to organise quite a few events for youngsters in the Poolsbrook and Duckmanton areas, and it’s great to see they continue to be popular.
“The sessions seemed to be enjoyed by everyone and I hope we will be able to organise more activities in the future.”
