The Border Bogie Challenge takes place in the beautiful conservation village of Denholm in the heart of the Scottish Borders.   It's an insane, fast-paced timetrial race down a hill on a typical rural country road, (which will have been closed to vehicles for the duration, obviously!) in a homemade bogie (or a go-kart for those of you who aren't lucky enough to be Scottish).

And don't forget, for those mums and dads who are prepared to endanger their children for the entertainment of others, there will be two, possibly three kids runs in the morning for the under-sixteens.

Juniors and Senior races.
  • Classes for Soapbox Cartie, Gravity Sidecar, Gravity Bike and Pedal Bike.
  • SCA Championship points available.

Check out their web site and facebook page for further details.

The third Penn House Grand Prix returns this year on a slightly later date of June 27th. The meeting is aimed at enthusiasts who really want a fair and challenging competition. Weight limits in the 'formula' classes are strictly enforced and there is also an 'open' class that allows anything safe to have a run. The technical standard was very high in 2014 and looks to be the same or better in 2015. Gravity bikes are very welcome. Email adrian@sbcon.co.uk for information.

Hinkley BID Soap Box DerbyThe Hinckley BID Soap Box Derby is intended as an annual fun day for the teams, supporters and spectators of all ages from the Hinckley area, and beyond. As an event, it is also intended to raise money for local charities.

The aim is to encourage up to 50 Soap Box Teams to compete.

The idea is to utilise the natural hill on Castle Street for individual 'Time-Trial' performances – 3 runs per Team. The course will start from the Church Walk junction and end in Market Square.

'Themed' Soap Boxes are especially encouraged since they provide the most interest to spectators.

Although an Entry fee is required (£25 per team), this event is also subsidised by the Hinckley Town Centre Partnership.
