Dalby Forest Soapbox Derby, Yorkshire
Set in the heart of the North Yorshire moors. Dalby Forest has a long history for hosting many types of racing competitions and provides a stunning backdrop for the event.
The Track is one mile of fast sweeping tarmac through the Forest and speeds in excess of 50 mph are to be expected. In 2010 LG Racing were officially recorded at 59 MPH. (unofficially 65 MPH !!)
The course has high speed off camber corners, made even trickier by the changing light conditions caused by the dense tree cover. Crossing the finish line, carts will be doing around 50 mph and have to be capable of slowing down to a walking pace within 100 metres.
The course is not Suitable For Novelty Carts.
