Soapbox Derby Comes to Chippenham

For the first time in Chippenham’s history, the town will be welcoming our very own FREE Soap Box Derby in true Chippenham style on Sunday 25th June from 11am-4pm.

Brought to you by Chippenham Connected and Chippenham Town Council the Soapbox Derby will trial non-power assisted karts through the outlined course starting at the bottom of the Market Place, with competitors navigating through the High Street past crowds of spectators and businesses and finishes at the Bridge to win a range of coveted titles and trophies.

Each hand-made kart will adhere to certain rules and regulations set out by event experts, comprising of a non-motorised vehicle, which will be launched with a running push start by a team member and steered by the team’s driver.

This is the perfect occasion for Wiltshire’s liveliest market town to come together and a chance for residents, students, businesses and visitors alike to channel their creativity to concoct the wackiest, weirdest, wildest and most wonderful homemade soapbox vehicles to complete a course throughout our town centre.
