What is it?
The Humber Bridge Soapbox Derby sees amateur teams compete in handmade carts powered only by gravity. The first race starts at 10am with a break at midday for an exhibition of Street Luge and Gravity Bikes.
Competitors work hard on building their carts creating a varied array of crazy designs. The derby is a popular community event with competitors from the local schools and businesses, as well as brave individuals.
Prizes on the day will go to the fastest time, the best turned out soap crew, the most innovative design and the fastest school team.
