Calling all daredevils and soapbox racing enthusiasts. On a Sunday in July for the past 10 years, Castle Street in Hinckley has welcomed teams of incredible soapbox racers who battle it out for glory in time trials down the Castle Street hill. There are thrills and spills and a great festival atmosphere throughout the day. In 2019 we were even featured after the evening news on the BBC East Midlands Today programme.

If you would like to participate in our 2020 race or would just like to find out a little more, then please give us a call on 01455 698494.

Team entries are limited to a maximum of 40, so don't delay! We have some fabulous trophies for presentation to winners on the day in both 'senior' and 'junior' categories.

The full Race Pack can be found on our website at along with online registration.
