17 Teams Entered for Cairngorm Soapbox Extreme

Bookmark and Share

Haldir's Arrow17 intrepid gravity racers will compete in the inaugural Cairngorm Soapbox Extreme for the honour of being crowned "King of the Mountain".  Teams will be travelling from as far away as Suffolk to compete over two days on the longest course in Britain.

First to sample the course will be Haldir's Arrow (left) from Glasgow. This cartie has some pedigree, having raced twice before at the Belchford Downhill, and should be very competitive.

The carties will run individually against the clock in practice and qualifying runs on Saturday evening, and then run in head-to-head group eliminations on Sunday. The heats will be run for the first twenty minutes of every hour from 10.00am, with the finals starting at 4.00pm.

The full list of competitors is;

1 Haldir's Arrow
2 The Cheats
 3 Formula Gravity
4 Team Rooket
5 Jim Ewen
 Where's the Engine
7 Innovators
8 Night Train
 Johnny Stevens
 Bush Racing
 Once a Fortnight
12 Crockle
13 Cairngorm
 Team Riley
 Alford Bowling Club
 The Bandit

Thanks for a great weekend

I would like to pass on my thanks to Stephen and the team for organising a brilliant weekend and see you next year (hopefully I don't stuff it again, though). I would also like to say well done to all of the drivers and team members who deserve a big round of applause for making the event as entertaining as it was and for their support when we were trying to get the the bogie back up and running again.

Thanks for a great weekend


thanks for a great weekend. For a first time run event of its size you and the rest of the team did a great job.

Well done to all of the other racers as well, we had a great weekend, thanks for  your support and help especially after I stuffed it. 

Only one suggestion for next year, can we get some huge big midge hoovers - stop us getting eaten alive by the wee monsters.

 See you next year,

Paul and Iain
