Ready, Steady, Go. All race fans will be setting course for Pomeroy this summer as the Longest Soapbox Race in Ireland is currently being planned.
The race route promises hair raising action as the Soapboxes will let let gravity help them rip down Pomeroy Main Street at breathtaking speeds. Starting at the Credit Union the teams will have to prepare the vehicles for the death defying course, around the diamond and down the straightway on Main Street known to be one of the Steepest Streets in Ireland to Station Road. They will have to negotiate this corner and major wipe outs here are expected. Heading towards the old railway bridge there is a double chicane and then its the back straight down Cornamaddy road where the the fastest laps will be recorded on the finish line.
