Dalby Forest Soapbox Derby 2014

Team Rooket - August 13, 2014 - 00:15

Just back from another excellent weekend at Dalby Forest Sopbox derby. With both the bike and cart taking home trophies (2nd for bike and 3rd for cart) on a very fast and challenging course, made even more interesting withthe weather conditions.

A msssive thanks to Andy Ash and Michelle Beckwith for organising and hosting not only the racing, but all of the other facilities and the entertainment. :)

The rain may have come down in biblical proportions over the weekend at times and shortend the racing on Sunday (a wise decision and I think all would agree), but all enjoyed the weekend and look forward to racing back here again.

A special mention has to go to those who brought "vehicles" for the novelty event on Saturday...what a hoot and goes to show we can have a laugh as well.

On the friday run down it was also an opportunity to call in and see the team at East Coast Fibreglass http://www.ecfibreglasssupplies.co.uk/  to show what we have been using the materials for, as they were keen to see the cart, the bike and the converted freedom caravan. A big thanks to Gary who took time out of his busy schedule to spend time with us and we have come away a lot wiser as a result.

Also thanks to RM Bearings http://rmbearings.co.uk/ceramic.php for supplying us with a spare set of bearings for the caravan at very short notice. It meant we could get to the event knowing if there was an issue we could change out and get going quickly.

If you are quick there is one for sale on ebay at the minute. Might need some mods, but looks a good starting point.
