Not to be confused with the youth soapbox derby, Red Bull Soapbox Race is a national race for amateur drivers, which is fueled by creativity and competitive fun - not to mention the need for speed. This unique non-motorized racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous, human-powered soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race. Cars range from realistic replicas to anything the imagination can conjure up. Past cars include a baby carriage, a rodeo clown, a massive cob of corn, a jail cell and of course, a tenacious taco. To gain more showmanship points, participants often wear outrageous costumes, act out skits, and create their own music soundtracks for the race.
We invite you to experience the adrenaline and courage of the daring pilots who concoct these innovative vehicles on 6 November in Mexico, as the city of Monterrey gives life to its first ever Red Bull Soapbox Race.
