Soapbox Derby

 

The soapbox derby began over 50 years ago in the USA with youngsters racing downhill in makeshift carts made from crates and soapboxes. This soon evolved into regular organized events. The whole family often gets involved in the fun of building the car, weekend racing or competing in national or even international championships. Competitors are usually girls and boys aged between 8 and 18. Power is solely gravity-produced and there are strict rules and specifications regarding car building. Events take place in many parts of the world.
