Swanage RNLI launch Soapbox Race in Lifeboat Week 2020!

The Swanage RNLI Soapbox Race is a fun event for teams to build and race their own push along racing cart. The race will be held on Saturday 15 August 2020 on The Downs in Swanage just above Broad Road car park.

Event creator and lifeboat crew member Matt Steeden said: 'Each team will be allocated three runs, each time trying to secure a better time. The course follows a route across the Swanage Downs. At the widest part of the course, the driver will have the option of taking either a short chicane or a jump to test their skills!

We are encouraging entrants to theme their Soapbox and the best themed entry will win a prize.'

The event is limited to a maximum of 40 entrants. There is a junior category (driver is 12yrs to 17yrs on the date of the race) and an adult category (driver is 18yrs and over on the date of the race). Full entry details, including design regulations are available on our website -

The entry fee is £25 per team, with a £10 non-refundable deposit on registration.

Don't forget, you need time to build your Soapbox, so enter as soon as possible to guarantee your entry for 2020!
