Tickets are now on sale for the Red Bull Soapbox Race 2013 – after a nine year hiatus, the wackiest road race returns to London on Sunday 14 July at Alexandra Palace, London.
Hundreds submitted ideas but only 70 teams made the final cut. Some of the ingenious engineering that made it through to the big race include: a loaf of bread baked to soapbox size, Elvis’ blue suede shoe and a Royal baby carriage.
The human-powered soapboxes will career downhill at Alexandra Palace outlaid with jumps, bumps, curves and swerves to get to the finish line – competing against the clock.
Off the race track, there will be plenty of action to keep the crowds entertained including face painting, ‘people pit-stops’ and live music from DJs.
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 judges on the day.
The course opens to the public at 10.30am, racing commences at 12pm and the winner is crowned at 4pm.
