The Red Bull Soapbox Race is a car race with a difference — there are no engines in this one, no souped-up turbos, and no aerodynamic wind-tunnel rockets — all of the cars in this race are made by amateurs in their sheds and garages.

Each machine is fuelled by nothing but gravity, courage (maybe a bit too much courage!), and a big hefty push from their mates at the starting line, and some furious Fred Flintstone-style peddling to the finish line.

Some drivers clearly want to win the race, whilst others just come along to show off the craziest contraption you've ever seen in your life. Some of them will get to the bottom of the hill, whilst others are fortunate if they even make it off the starting line! But you can be sure that every race will be entertaining, with plenty of crashes, hairy moments and laughs.
