Ashton soapbox races

Get ready for some head-clearing new year's day adrenaline!!

The race will begin at approximately 10am on 1st January 2019. Practice from 8am.

The course will be along Elmley Road. The start line will be located between the turnings for Hillside and Cotton’s Lane. The finish line will be at the Star Inn.

Up to four persons are allowed per team. Entry fees will be £10 per competitor under 16 years on 1st January 2019 and £20 per competitor 16 years and over on 1st January 2019.

There will be three categories of team – under 16 years, 16 years & over and mixed.

The winner of each category will be the quickest kart over two timed runs of the course. There will also be a best fancy-dress competition and a best built kart award. Other awards may be provided, depending on entries, and will be communicated before race day.

There will be a push zone at the start of the course - a penalty of 10 seconds is incurred if those assisting the start do not adhere to this zone.

The course is quite steep; competitors can expect to reach 20 mph. Karts will have one practice run each (will not count in the timed competition.). During the race, each kart will be required to complete two runs; the average of the two runs is the result.
