After a fantastic first event in June 2019 which saw an attendance of 14,000 people, The Barrow BID Super Soapbox Challenge returns to Dalton Road on Sunday, August 29th 2021 (the day before August bank holiday Monday) for more Soapbox racing.

Can you see yourself hurtling down our huge ramp with only a soapbox, your team-mates and gravity to help you? We’re looking for more adventurous teams of five people to enter The Barrow BID Super Soapbox Challenge, build their cart and have a fantastic day’s racing. 

We’re making the 2021 event course more exciting with some new features and the pits will be doubled in size to accommodate the much larger number of teams we believe will be entering. The pits will also be re-sited to run along Dalton Road behind the ramp to allow easier access to the start area and more room.

Thanks to the continuing support of BAE Systems, we are keeping the prices the same as 2019.
