Mar 17, 2014 UK SOAPBOX RACES 2014 Now that Spring has sprung it's not long until we can enjoy this year's round of Soapbox Racing events and here's just a taster of some to come. Gravity karting is getting more and more popular up and down the country. The Scottish Cartie Association have lots of events listed on their website. On 25th May is the 5th Annual Border Bogie Challenge: Bordon, in Hampshire, are holding their 4th Annual Soapbox Derby on Spring Bank Holiday, Monday 26th May. On 22 June the Children's Ward Bogie Race (in aid of Lancaster Royal Infirmary for children) will be held at Greenlands Farm Village, Tewitfield, Carnforth off junction 35 of the M6. A great day out for a great cause. The Humber Bridge Soapbox Derby (started in 2012 in Hessle and now a major annual event) will be held on 5th July. Check out their gallery - it looks a lot of fun! And this is just a small sample of the many opportunities to have a great day out with the kids having fun in the fresh air watching people with big smiles on their faces racing down hills. Go on - give it a go. They'll love it!
