The Krazy Races downhill soapbox derby will take place in Warrington town centre on June 16th between 10am and 5pm and Time Square will play host to a viewing area for spectators to watch the excitement via a huge outdoor screen. As well as the races themselves, there’ll be food stalls, children’s rides and plenty of fun activities for all the family. It’s set to be a day to remember.

Brought to you by Warrington Business Improvement District (BID), in partnership with Sarah Belcher Events Ltd, Krazy Races will see up to 40 teams build and race their own go-karts downhill, while tackling the track with chicanes, obstacles, water and more.

Whether it’s taking part for the sheer fun or to fundraise, each team will be entertaining crowds and competing to have the fastest soapbox kart.

There’ll be a main winner’s trophy for first place but there’ll also be prizes for showmanship, innovation and best dressed. The soapbox is only half of the show, as each team will need to wow organisers with a 20-second performance before they launch themselves downhill.

Follow the official facebook event to meet the teams taking part and for up to date information on the day.
