C12 : The UK's Fastest Soapbox

This is the only view most racers ever have of C12.

Steve Thomas has been winning races the length and breadth of the UK for several years now with his sleek carbon fibre creation. It is a genuine all round champion, and has won at high speed gravity races and sub 20mph grass track events alike.  He is also the undisputed King of the Mountain at the now defunct Cairngorm Soapbox Extreme, having won convincingly there from 2010 to the last race held there in 2012, and was clocked on radar speed gun travelling at 70mph.

Steve's success is not only due to his technical expertise in creating his carbon fibre masterpiece. He is also a very skilful driver, as can be seen from this gutsy overtaking move in the final at CSEx 2011.

He has started 2014 with yet another win at the Tetbury Wacky Races, and will be travelling up to Scotland to defend his title at the Border Bogie Challenge later this month and, barring accidents or an uncharacteristic driving mistake, it looks like that Steve will be travelling home with more silverware to add to his collection.
