Red Bull Soapbox Race will return Atlanta on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015. I attended this event back in 2012 and it reminded me of The Little Rascals and their hand-made race car. This downhill challenge includes non-motorized (human-powered) soapbox machines with outrageous designs. Each hand-made machine is fueled by creativity, showmanship and the need for speed.
I snapped this photo of my favorite teams & their pink heels. 🙂
The South’s most witty and innovative teams will race each other down the twists and turns of North Avenue. Red Bull Soapbox Race is a single day of thrills, so the number of contestants will be limited. Teams are chosen based on creativity, technical feasibility of the craft build, craft safety and originality.
Red Bull Soapbox Race has previously taken place in Atlanta in 2009 and 2012. The October 24th event will be the 103rd Red Bull Soapbox Race to ever take place, with the first U.S. race held in St. Louis in 2006. The global event dates back to 2000, when it first took place in Belgium, and has since visited 46 countries. Cincinnati will also host Red Bull Soapbox in 2015.
Those interested in participating will need to submit their entries by August 1, 2015 by visiting redbull.com/
