About Soapbox Racers

The soapbox carts are hand-made machines fuelled by enthusiasm, a bit of courage and the force of gravity to race down Market Hill.

Carts come in all shapes and sizes from realistic replicas to crazy designs and must compete against the clock in a downhill race as well as other events.

Prizes will be given for the fastest times in each category (by age of driver) as well as to the overall winner of the head to head races. But speed isn't everything and there are prizes for the most creative and well constructed designs.

on Sunday 21st May

What is a SoapBox Race?

Come and Watch

Come along on the day and watch, its FREE! In addition to the soapbox cart races there are many fine places to eat and drink and other fun activities happening in Market Square. So for a fun filled family day make sure you don’t miss this annual event. Find out where to eat and drink and park on the day.

Enter a Soapbox Racer

See yourself as a budding F1 designer? Then take up the challenge and build a soapbox racer to take on the rest and clock the fastest time down the hill. Or perhaps let your imagination run wild and come up with the most creative and fun cart of the day.

Either way join in the fun and enter a cart, but it will have to pass our scrutineers inspection as safety is paramount. The Rules for the design of carts and the race may be downloaded here and should be read carefully to ensure that you comply with them so as not to be disappointed on the day.

Join in the fun!
