Windmill Hill SoapFestWindmill hill soap box derby will raise money for Clifford AFC and will be a rip-roaring day of thrills and spills for teams, supporters and spectators alike.

The first race, the junior soap box derby, gets underway at 10.30am with adult races starting at 12.30pm. In addition to races there will be food, drink and entertainment for everyone. Funds will be raised through each team’s own sponsorship, ticket sales and sales of food and drink on the day. We urge entering teams to gather as much sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues as possible, as they build their soap boxes in the lead-up to the event. ‘Fun’ or ‘themed’ soap boxes are especially welcome!

Tetbury Wacky Races, Gloucestershire

Monday 2nd May 2016

Tetbury Wacky Races As you would expect with just a few months to go, preparations are well underway for the fifth running of the Tetbury Lions Wacky Races soapbox derby that will be held on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May.

Last year saw many and varied entries ranging from a galleon made from bits of a garden shed, a steam engine, a carrot, a giant cream egg and the Jamaican Bobsleigh team to name but a few and we anticipate similar creative entries this year.

So if you are considering an entry, now is the time to start planning and putting a few ideas together while leaving plenty of time to really test the vehicle before race day.

Border Bogies, Scottish Borders

Saturday 28th May 2016

SCA Championship Points Available

Border Bogies 2016

The Border Bogie Challenge takes place in the beautiful conservation village of Denholm in the heart of the Scottish Borders.   It's an insane, fast-paced timetrial race down a hill on a typical rural country road, (which will have been closed to vehicles for the duration, obviously!) in a homemade bogie (or a go-kart for those of you who aren't lucky enough to be Scottish).

And don't forget, for those mums and dads who are prepared to endanger their children for the entertainment of others, there will be two, possibly three kids runs in the morning for the under-sixteens.

Juniors and Senior races.
  • Classes for Soapbox Cartie, Gravity Sidecar, Gravity Bike and Pedal Bike.
  • SCA Championship points available.

Check out their web site and facebook page for further details.
