7th June 2019
Racers at this year’s Wicksteed Park Soap Box Derby will be competing for a trip to the home of British motor racing, thanks to a fantastic new partnership deal with Silverstone.
The Soap Box Derby is now in its fifth year and is rapidly growing into one of the best events of its kind in the country.
It encourages competitors to use their ingenuity and imagination to create karts capable of tackling a challenging course, with the thrills and spills attracting competitors and spectators from across the region.
And as part of the partnership, this year’s winners will get tickets to enjoy the Formula 1 Rolex British Grand Prix 2019, being held at Silverstone Circuit on July 12 – 14.
The Soap Box Derby event, on Saturday June 15, will see 60 home-built karts tackle a downhill course at the park, with both juniors and seniors competing for prizes.
Karts will be on view from 11.30am, with the first timed runs starting at 12 noon and the trophy presentation at 5pm.
The event is free to watch although car parking charges apply and refreshments will be available.
