Soap box Race 2019
sEPTEMBER 8, 2019
ABOUT THE RACE
The inaugural 2019 Ashbourne Soap Box Race is the brainchild of a group of 16
local adrenaline junkies who have met on a monthly basis since
last year to ensure that the town sees the first event of its kind.
Around 60 teams are expected to take part, with categories including
both families and over 18s because we don't want to be that
race that turns children away.
Spectators will also have the benefit of Saturday being the final day of
Ashbourne Beer & Cider Festival at the town hall, so if you do fall at the first hurdle,
you can always blame the drink from the night before.
As much as we'd like to let you build 500hp machines with no brakes to go hurtling down the hill with, Health & Safety won't let us.
Below are six key rules and regulations, but that doesn't make the others any less important.
Download our rules form below and, for all of our sakes,
please read them.
