Red Bull Soapbox Race

Red bull soapbox race is returning to London Alexandra Palace on July 12th 2015!

If you have never heard of this tremendous fun it is definitely worth a watch. What is it?! I hear you cry; well it is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Each hand-made contraption is fuelled by nothing but pure courage, and the force of gravity. This fun if not slightly eccentric, non-motorised racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs to design and build outrageous soapbox vehicles and compete against the clock in a downhill race. Previous years have seen a piano, a giant baby carriage, a rodeo clown, a massive corn on the cob, a jail cell and the Golden Gate Bridge!
What time does the event start: Gates open at 10:30am. The Red Bull Soapbox Race begins at 12:00pm.
Nearest transport links: Although Alexandra Palace is the closest station to the event these trains will not be frequent, so I would recommend that you use Wood Green Tube Station on the Piccadilly Line where trains are more frequent.
How much is a ticket? General admission – £9.00
Children under 10 years old – £5.00
