This is an off road race so karts must have some form of inflatable tires with a minimum of 3 wheels.

The race is down hill and use of pedals is not aloud, it is strictly gravity that is to power the kart.

We will have bails set up at the bottom of the hills to stop if brakes are not built into the kart.


There is a level of risk involved in the soapbox race. Boyne Valley Activities can not be held responsible for injury or damage caused to participants or their property while taking part in the race. Participants must wear a helmet for the race and understand that there should be no sharp objects or areas in the soap box that may cause injury. Soapboxes will have at least three wheels and will be checked by the race committee to ensure that it is safe for the race. All Soapboxes have to be at the race no later than 1.30 on the 17th March.
