Kop Hill Climb Festival

Fundraising for the local community

15/16th September 2018


The 2018 Soapbox Challenge goes from strength to strength with new and exciting features for the courageous teams to tackle.

Our tricky chicane and lift off ramp are back by popular demand, and this year our drivers must hold their nerve on the steeper curved banking, hoping to see their way through the newly installed foam ‘kartwash’. The challenge is open to young people aged 10-17 who design, construct and race their karts during the Kop Hill Climb Festival weekend.

The Soapbox Challenge is dedicated to the memory of Andy Beaumont, our original driving force behind the event.  Every year, the worthy victors of the fiercely competitive ‘furthest distance travelled’ will be presented with the ‘Beaumont Cup’.  Other great awards to be battled out are for Fastest Soapbox, Best Soapbox and Spirit of the Event.

Don’t miss the thrills and (sometimes) spills of this ever popular attraction.

For those wishing to enter a team (min 2 – max 4 aged between 10-17yrs), first take a look at the rules:
