Red Bull Soapbox Race – This Sunday

Up to much at the weekend? If you can’t make it to the Sachsenring for MotoGP, or Goodwood Festival of Speed, we have a back-up plan for Sunday.

The Red Bull Soapbox Race returns to London after a nine year hiatus, and features some of the wackiest human-powered soapboxes razzing downhill at Alexandra Palace. The course has jumps, bumps and plenty of corners, with all competitors racing against the stopwatch.


Chief Designer at Red Bull Racing, Rob Marshall; street trials pro-rider, Danny MacAskill and multi-award winning mountain biker, Gee Atherton; will be the judging the 70+ entries on the day (including our sister publication, Fast Car), and there’s plenty to do off the race track with live music and DJs. The course opens to the public at 10.30am, racing commences at 12pm and the winner is crowned at 4pm.
