Enjoy A Thrilling Day Out At Newmarket’s Soapbox Derby

With new jumps (and lots of crashes!), the event returns for its third year at Warren Hill, Newmarket, on Sunday 28th August.

During an exhilarating afternoon that promises to be packed with fun, the teams will get two runs of the course in a bid for soap and glory. The only thing that can’t be guaranteed is a smooth run… This year, the extended track features five new and exciting jumps, promising spectacular viewing and some spectacular crashes along the way!
Teams will be judged not just on their technical ability but also on looks and speed, with the ultimate winner being the fastest!
And, as if all of that wasn’t enough, crowds will be kept entertained with a samba band, stilt walkers and fun rides for children. There’ll also be food and drinks and other stalls.
Proceeds from the event will support the Newmarket Day Centre and Red Cross Help For Ukraine. While it’s free to attend, you do need to register in advance for tickets here
