Farndon Soapbox Derby

18 September 2022 11:00 am - 5:30 pm Farndon Village

The Hospice is proud to be the main beneficiary of The Farndon Soapbox Derby!

The car parks will open at 11.00am and for a full breakdown of what is going on and when, take a look at the Event Agenda HERE.

This is a time trial Charity event for gravity powered homemade karts, competing along a 350m tarmac road with gradual decline, which has curves, jumps and sections of steeper declines.

Karts will start from the bed of a 40ft trailer and thence down a shallow ramp onto the road course itself.

Each kart will make one practice run and three additional timed ‘race’ runs of the course and the final positions will be determined by the total time recorded for the three ‘race’ runs

There are 2 separate categories Juniors (12-17) and Adults (18 and over) this refers to the drivers of the kart, (the Construction and Race Team can be of any combination of ages).

There will be a competition for the kart judged on the day to the most creative and fun. And an additional prize for the individual kart team that raises the most sponsorship money!
