Postman Pat and the Great Greendale Race is the fourth episode of the third series which was broadcast on September 10th 2004. This episode was written by Glenn Dakin.


Pat, Alf, Ted, Ajay and P.C. Selby take part in a race around the village to see which of their vehicles is the best. During the race, the contestents have to take tests along the way to find out who knows the rules of the road. P.C. Selby on his bicycle falls behind the others straight away, but when Ted gets himself into a prickly situation and Alf gets delayed with his sheep, the policeman starts to catch up. Towards the end, Pat makes it into second place when suddenly Ajay's motorbike which has been holding the lead for most the race, runs out of petrol. Pat stops to help Ajay by letting him have the petrol from his spare can. Then P.C. Selby passes by and wins the race, but Pat does not go away empty handed for coming last. For stopping to help Ajay and losing the chance of winning the race, the Reverend Timms awards Pat with one of Mrs. Pottage's homemade apple pies as well as a trophy for P.C. Selby.
