Rushden’s Soap Box Derby *NEW DATE TBC*

Sun, 07 Jun 2020 14:00

Rushden's Soap Box Derby 2020 *NEW DATE TO BE CONFIRMED*

The course is the tarmac drive in Rushden Hall Park and consists of a straight downhill section with one right turn at the bottom on to the grass. To add to the excitement, the karts race two at a time. A good push is required at the top and the rest is left to gravity and good fortune!

If you and your team think you have what it takes to become Rushden's Soap Box Derby Champions of 2020, just download an entry form from Rushden Town Council website and start designing your winning Kart.

There are classes for 3 age groups ie 6-11 years, 12-16 years and 17 years and over and the karts also race more than once, so there is plenty of chance to cheer your favourite on. The karts will be scrutinised at 12.30pm, judging takes place at 1.30pm and the first race at 2pm prompt.

Food Stalls, entertainment and other activities will be announced shortly.

Prizes and trophies awarded to the race winners are again generously sponsored by King Tools along with Santa Pod and AJ Cycles (contact them if you have a problem with wheels!). Keep an eye out on Rushden Town Council's social media accounts, as our sponsors will also be giving you some brilliant hints and tips to help you create a winning entry.

Certificates will be awarded to all team entries.
