Monday 11 June 2018

The first soap box derby for CMK will take place on Saturday 16 June at the top of Midsummer Boulevard close to intu shopping centre.

There will be three race categories starting from10am with the children’s race:


Race Categories:

Seniors (15 years upwards) - £20 entry fee

The course is 200m long with a variety of obstacles including chicanes, water sprays and ramps.

Each cart gets a 5 minute time slot to complete the course as quickly as possible – the fastest cart in each category wins!

Carts will start the race using a ramp and the course is downhill so no propulsion is used.


100% of the entry fees will go to Willen Hospice, a local MK charity.


There will also be refreshment stands, exhibitor vehicles including Santa Pod drag racers, autonomous and electric vehicles and street entertainment with music from new MK club, Popworld.
