We had an unprecedented number of entries for this year’s Soapbox Challenge with 23 teams taking part.  The teams were made up of young people aged 10-17  coming from near and far to participate in the demanding but thrilling 2 day event which took place during the Kop Hill Climb Festival weekend.

Our tricky chicane, lift off ramp, curved banking and newly installed foam ‘kartwash’ definitely tested the drivers skill and demonstrated that they could hold their nerve over the 12 race runs.
