Soapbox Derby 2017- Dorothy House


9 July, 2017 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
The Soapbox Derby is a new event for Dorothy House Hospice Care which will take place on the Three Acre area of Royal Victoria Park (below the Royal Crescent and above Royal Avenue).
It will be a time trial for non-power assisted go-karts run over a grassy, inclined course. The karts will require a three-person team with one person driving and two pushing. The run will be timed by event stewards.
Children aged 7yrs+ are welcome to participate as drivers, if pushed by a parent or responsible adult (and with signed permission from a parent or guardian for under 18s). All teams must be registered and their karts inspected for safety on arrival.
The event should inspire some gentle rivalry between business competitors in Bath by pitting them in a time trial against one another so local car dealerships can compete against each other or estate agents, hairdressers, retailers, law firms, hotels or restaurants can compete to win a trophy and other great prizes. This event is not just open to local businesses, individuals are also most welcome to enter.
Competitors are encouraged to dress up their cars and themselves and bring friends, families and colleagues along to watch the battle of the soapboxes unfold. Prizes will be available for the best dressed team, most spectacular cornering and most entertaining run alongside trophies for the winning teams.
The first runs will take place from 11am and there will be children’s activities for all the family including a ‘Test Drive’ area for kids to sit on go-karts and a range of food and drink stall.
