Chariots of Fire

Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Each hand-made machine is fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull. This unique, non-motorised racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race.

Red Bull Soapbox Race

Alexandra Palace, London

14th July

Our entry will be brought to life by combining the horse racing skills of an ex professional jockey with those of a specialized team of animal rescue technicians from Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, of which said ex jockey is now a full time member.

Our entry will role up to the start line in the form of a sausage factory made from fabric on a wooden frame. On ‘go’ a three wheeled horse will bolt from the factory having been broken out by the firefighters and ridden by our ex jockey dressed as Welephant.
