The Basel Soap Box Race will take place again this year on August 29 at the race track from Gemsberg to Rümelinsplatz. In case of rain, the race will be postponed to September 11. In the morning, the training runs will take place and then from 2 p.m. the official race will start in front of a large crowd. About 30 racing teams are admitted.
It is not a speed race. What counts is the skill. The overcoming of various obstacles and the achieved distance will be judged. Parallel to the official evaluation, our jury will award a design prize for the most original soapbox. The use of old or leftover material is a criterion. So we are especially happy about creative boxes. However, the use of scrap material is not a condition for permission to start.
Participation is free of charge. There is no age limit. Pilots must be able to steer their vehicle independently. There will be a safety check before the training runs where brakes and steering will be checked. Helmet and gloves are mandatory for the pilots.
Registration is required.
