2018 Billericay Soapbox Derby


Bank Holiday Sunday saw the return of the popular charity event the Soapbox Derby.

Now in its third year, the derby which is run and organised by the Rotary Club of Billericay was bigger and better than ever, it was also the hottest may bank holiday on record.

A fun day full of fantastic Soapbox racing down thunder hill with School, colleges, local businesses and individuals that have all been working hard on their entries competing in several different categories.

The Rotary Club of Billericay Soap Box Derby raises money for charities, schools and organisations locally with 100% of proceeds from this event going to local charities.

The event takes place at Sun Corner, Billericay and was inspired by the Red Bull Soap Box races held across the world, The SoapBox tradition was started in the States because the early karts were made out of wooden crates which were originally used to ship soap and other household items.
