Rushden Soapbox Derby

The Derby will be run on the very top part of the Castle's Driveway. A section deemed too dangerous** for the hillclimb will present the perfect challenge for our daring derby(ers)…. A few chicanes (small hay bales) and death-defying jumps (kerb-height) will ensure that crowds will oooh and aaaah as the brave men (and women) in their (hopefully not flying) machines career (in control) down the 500m track.

The theme for 2018 will be “Wacky Races”. There is no entry fee for the Soapbox – and each team will be given 1 free family pass (suitable for 2 adults and 2 children).

**not really

Prizes will be awarded for the best team fancy dress, overall winner and “spirit of the Derby” for the most interesting soapbox.

The Gravity Grand Prix is an annual fun and fund raising event that has taken place in the Village of Cookham Dean in Berkshire since 2007.  It's a downhill race driven just by gravity, except for a short push at the start, and it has proved to be very, very popular amongst the 2,000 or so spectators who come to see it and experience the thrill and spectacle of the day.
