// Soap Box Derby
2016 the Royal Deeside Speed Festival brought soapbox racing to Kincardine O’
Neil and it was arguably one of the highlights of the Event! In 2017 we had an even larger field of entries and the competition was fierce. For 2018 we aim to smash it out of the park - but we need your help! An empty grid will not make for an exciting Soapbox showdown!
Please complete the attached Registration Form as soon as possible to secure your place on the 2018 Grid!
The Derby will be run on the very top part of the Castle's Driveway. A section deemed too dangerous** for the hillclimb will present the perfect challenge for our daring derby(ers)…. A few chicanes (small hay bales) and death-defying jumps (kerb-height) will ensure that crowds will oooh and aaaah as the brave men (and women) in their (hopefully not flying) machines career (in control) down the 500m track.
The theme for 2018 will be “Wacky Races”. There is no entry fee for the Soapbox – and each team will be given 1 free family pass (suitable for 2 adults and 2 children).
Prizes will be awarded for the best team fancy dress, overall winner and “spirit of the Derby” for the most interesting soapbox.
