More Information (Fosse 107 is not responsible for external websites)

Soap Box Derby is back, bigger and better for 2022!

Now in it's 11th Year, the annual Hinckley BID Soap Box Derby will make a very welcomed return, on Sunday 26th June 2022 hosted by Mark Foster from Fosse 107 and is FREE to attend.

This is a tremendously fun, family day for the teams and spectators alike. Comprising both a jump or a chicane, it is the driver's choice as they steam down the 200m Castle Street hill cheered on by the crowds.

As with all our Soap Box Derby events since 2010, we utilise the natural hill on Castle Street for individual time trials, with each team being allocated three runs (the slowest of which will not count).

The course will start near the Church Walk/Castle Street junction and end at the bottom of the Castle Street hill in Market Place. At the widest part of the course, the driver will have the option of taking either a short chicane or a jump to test their skill.

Themed Soap Boxes are especially encouraged since they provide the most interest to spectators. Although an entry fee of £25 is required per team, this event is also heavily subsidised by Hinckley BID and the Town Centre Businesses.

There is no charge for spectators, all welcome!
