Soapbox Brake Force and Gradients

Scottish Cartie Association - June 13, 2016 - 21:53

The vast majority of soapbox rules contain a requirement that all carties have effective brakes, and many specify a minimum force that they must be able to hold. This is commonly 50 KgF. The wording is typically "The brakes must be capable of holding the vehicle on a dry horizontal road surface, when laden with driver and any ballast, against a horizontal load of 50KgF exerted on the front towing eye.".

This has been adequate for most of the races up until now, but with racers and race organisers now increasingly looking for steeper, twistier and more challenging courses, the "50Kg static brake test" needs to be reviewed.
