Turbo the ferret appears from his tube in the 3.00 Ferret Race at Tring's 2012 Carnival. Ralph had already won the race having appeared from the red tube a few moments earlier. To win, the tip of the ferret's tail must clear the tube. These attractive, lithe creatures seem to relish scuttling along the tubes laid out for them, and races can be quite amusing with competitors turning round mid tube and heading in the wrong direction, or poking their noses out of the end but refusing to entirely exit.
