Soap-box derby

The soap-box derby has a new format for this year, having two sections:

1pm – two fast road-runs from Woodgate down to the top of Culmstock. This is not a spectator section of the event, but one for the drivers and cart builders to challenge themselves.

2.30pm – soap-box parade event in the community garden for spectators – there will be water, balloons and ramps!

For more information about the soap-box-derby please contact Scott Vincent: scott@blackdownsystems.co.uk.
