Scottish Carties Comments - March 23, 2015 - 14:09

In reply to Avon Dassett Soap Box Derby, Warwickshire:

In spite of The Avon being closed currently,the event is most definitely on!

A bar is being organised along with catering and toilet facilities. It's a great day out for all,and I'm looking forward to seeing old and new entrants.

There is no need for a chicane this year,our "water feature" has been dealt with! The hill is in good condition,so speeds will be high.Good brakes are a must!

Lotus Soapbox Racers Sold

Scottish Cartie Association - February 11, 2015 - 21:14

 

 

News has reached us that the Lotus 119 Series soapbox racers have been sold.

The racers were built to race at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and the fully enclosed 119C was never beaten. After the Goodwood FoS ended their soapbox racing in 2004, the 119 series were retired and used predominantly for display, although they were occasionally wheeled out to appear on TV.

It is understood that a deal has been done to sell all three of the racers to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Alabama, so it seems that these iconic British soapbox racers will never be seen in the UK or on a race track again.

UK Soapbox Race Calendar Feed - February 7, 2015 - 15:35
Start: Jul 11 2015 - 9:00am End: Jul 11 2015 - 5:00pm

The Penarth Downhill Derby is an event held on Carnival Day each year where amateur drivers race homemade karts (Soapbox Vehicles) down the hill towards the esplanade. Each hand-made vehicle is non-motorised and relies on the force of gravity (and skill) for propulsion. Karts built for speed or fun are welcome to race against each other on the all new obstacle course.

The course has been designed to accommodate both speed and fun elements and is open to everyone.

For full details, please see the Penarth Downhill Derby web site.
