Several events for the 2009 calendar have already been confirmed, and some are even accepting entries. The events calendar is currently up to date, but if you know of any corrections or additions then please get in touch.

The year kicks off with TES Cadwell Park Gravity Festival on Feb 8th, and entries for this event are open now and teams already confirmed include Aberdeenshire's own Team Weasel.

Other dates confirmed are;

  • Mansell Lacy Soap Box Derby - 7 June
  • Catterline Cartie Challenge - 13/14 June
  • Richards Castle Soapbox - 12 July
  • Belchford Downhill Challenge - 13 September

GoFast! Speed Days will beĀ  held from 18-20 September, although it has not yet been confirmed if there will be a soapbox class included. See the events calendar for links to the various events.

Other unconfirmed events are Monymusk Cairties, which is expected to be "early in 2009", and SCARE in Stonehaven which will probably be in September.

There is also a rumour of a new and spectacular soapbox race to be held somewhere in the Highlands in 2009. Details are sketchy at the moment, although it seems likely that it will be in August or September.
