Reckon you're quick? Taking part in more than one event in Scotland this year? Why not register for the SCA Championship and find out how good you really are!
The SCA Championship is a competition run across the main soap box events in Scotland with the aim of encouraging participation in the various events and to create friendly rivalry between teams.
Teams can register for free and are awarded points for their final position in the participating events, and the team with the greatest number of points after the last event will be crowned as the SCA Champion. There are separate classes for Soapbox Cartie and Gravity Sidecar.
They have both been revised from last year - substantially so in the case of the soapbox rules - so competitors should read them thoroughly to ensure they are eligible to compete.CSEx]

Exciting news for the growing band of retro-cartie enthusiasts seeking to build an iconic "soap box racer" using pram wheels, a plank of wood and questionable rope steering.
No longer do we need to bemoan the difficulty in sourcing wheels from the increasingly hard to find Silver Cross coach built pram, or spend precious hours scanning search engines and advertisements in corner shop windows. The parts are readily available and brand new!
