Red Bull Soapbox Race

Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Each hand-made machine is fueled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull. This unique, non-motorized racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race. Red Bull Soapbox gives both experienced racers and amateurs alike a chance to tap into their inner youth to design and build the most outrageous vehicle with one goal in mind, to make it down the course the fastest and with their creation in one piece. In order to be crowned king or queen of the hill you’ll need more than just skill, teams will be judged on a criteria of one-third speed, one-third creativity and one- third showmanship. In the end, it comes down to not only building the quickest soapbox, but also impressing the judges by how outrageous and charismatic they can be.  Applying to participate in Red Bull Soapbox Race is free. Racers and participants must be 18 or older. For more information, including applications, rules, photos, and video footage from past Red Bull Soapbox Race events, visit
