Soapbox Racers

The University of Southampton Soapbox Racers is an exciting group that aims to design, build and race a gravity powered soapbox racer.

Our aim is to compete in soapbox racing competitions, primarily the Red Bull Soapbox Race which takes place in locations across the globe.

We have a different theme each year which provides a regular and exciting opportunity for students from all courses and backgrounds to get get involved in creative design! A video of the 2015 London race can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEnl45gv_eE.
