The Soapbox Derby is a super popular event at the Roundwood Festival. Last year we even had a celebrity entrant who was well disguised in his padded clothing and helmet!! So its the time again to dismantled that old pram and get welding to make your customized box for this year’s derby which takes place on Sunday 31st of July on Roundwood Bank.

Prizes are generously sponsored again this year by Access Automation & Joe Synnott Roofing and will be awarded to the race winner & the most imaginative soap box!

Each applicant must present their soap box for inspection and complete an application form. All the rules, regulations and special conditions are outlined on the entry form below. So give it a good read before you start working. One soapbox – one rider please! No multiple entries using the same soap box!
