Racing of Hamsters

Hamster Racing is a sport in which hamsters are placed in miniature racing vehicles, such as hamster wheels or hamster balls.

The race is a straight 9-meter (30-foot) course. The winner is the first hamster to cross the finish line in the shortest amount of time.

In 2001, a hamster set a world record in hamster racing by crossing the finish line in 38 seconds.

Gambling and online betting for each hamster have become popular in the United Kingdom. It began in 2001, when a foot and mouth disease pandemic canceled some of England's horse races and other athletic events, causing bookmakers' profits to fall.

Professional hamster racing was created and promoted, and the first-ever hamster racing series was arranged by the online bookmaker Blue Square.

Throughout the week, there were qualifying rounds and a final race. The main event was webcast live and transmitted by other media sites such as BBC London and Sky News, as well as a full-page piece in major British newspaper publications The Sun and the Daily Mail.

That race of hamsters was always divided into two race classes based on their species classifications - dwarfs and Syrians. Dwarfs, Cricetulus, are rodent geniuses that look more rat-like than regular hamsters, whereas Syrians or Golden Hamsters have expanding cheek pouches and are found primarily in northern Syria and southern Turkey. They are also occasionally classified according to their level of experience, as well as whether they have long or short hair.

MTV launched "HamTrak '06" in 2006, featuring professional hamster racers sponsored by The Sun, XFM, Pimp My Ride, and many others.

It was originally conducted in Hammywood Hills Rodent Raceway in May 2006, and the sponsor New Media Age's "Team Hot Rodent" won. Their hamster was a female Syrian hamster that was 8 months old. It was her 24th victory.

Petco announced the revival of their biennial hamster races in 2007, dubbed the "Petco Hamster Ball Derby." It is held in March and September of each year. Petco's race track is 8 feet (2.4 meters) long, and hamsters run in spherical balls. The race winners receive various prizes such as training equipment, hamster snacks, and so on.
