‘Anyone in need of a body for a soap box cart?
NOT A FULLY BUILT SOAPBOX, just a bath tub! picture is just for reference.

Upside down bath like this would be perfect. Let me know before it gets skipped.’

Ashton Soapbox Races 2020 @ Ashton under Hill
Jan 1 @ 10:00 am
Ashton Soapbox Races 2020 @ Ashton under Hill

Bring your friends and family and get your first, fast and furious adrenaline fix of 2020. This was a storming success last year; It promises to be even better this year…don’t miss out.

The race starts at 10.00 on 1st January 2020. All spectators and competitors are welcome.

If you’re competing, you’ll need to be in the pits at the top of the run by 9.00 ready for scrutineering.

The course will be along Elmley Road. The start line will be located between the turnings for Hillside and Cotton’s Lane. The finish line will be at the Star Inn.

Entry fees will be £25 per kart rider. Kart riders that are under 16 on 1st January 2020 are £10.

If your team includes mechanics / pushers / a medical team / a life coach then you’ll have to pay £10 per head (£5 for under 16s) for each of them too; we’ll collect the money for your pit crew on the day and you can have up to four people on your team.

There will be two race categories; under 16s and over 16s. This is based on the age of the kart rider.

There will also be a best fancy-dress competition and a best built kart award.

Other awards may be provided, depending on entries.

There will be a push zone at the start of the course (think winter Olympics bobsleigh style) – a penalty of 10 seconds is incurred if those assisting the start do not adhere to this zone.

The course is quite steep; competitors can expect to reach 20 mph.

Detailed race rules and regulations can be found here:
