Rushden's Soap Box Derby 2021 – Roundup

At the beginning of the month after several days of heavy rain, the weather dried up, the sun came out and so did hundreds of spectators, all eager to watch Rushden's highly anticipated Soap Box Derby event at Hall Park. With 17 fantastically made karts, 36 brave drivers and many fit pushers, the atmosphere was buzzing. Some incredible finish times were recorded and some nail bighting moments were had.
