Ready! Set! Go! Red Bull Soapbox Race is an event featuring some of the wildest legal street racing around and is set to take place in Downtown Los Angeles, CA.
On May 21 the usually clogged streets will transform into a bona fide drag strip! Approximately 40 teams will compete in this non-motorized racing event, which encourages gear heads and adrenaline junkies alike to break out their toolboxes and build outrageous human-powered vehicles designed to thrill the masses.
Speed demons will race down Grand Avenue and brave a razor sharp turn onto 5 th Street in Downtown Los Angeles, crossing the finish line right in front of Pershing Square. Although it’s the same location as the 2009 Red Bull Soapbox Race, racers will face a whole new set of challenges!
- Each soapbox must be powered by gravity and imagination
- All vehicles must be less than six feet wide and 20 feet in length
Teams can enter their engineering marvels and crazy concepts with a formal application found at redbullsoapboxrace.com starting on February 2. Applications MUST be submitted by March 25.
