The barmiest race around is back in town! That’s right, it’s almost time for another Red Bull Soapbox Race, which is set to take place on July 12 at Alexandra Palace. Since the energy drink magnates first launched their mad dash for glory in 2000 in Brussels, the event has seen thousands of crazy crafters fly down hills around the world, with sheer gusto and gravity the only things helping them on their way. Those willing to partake this summer have until March 31 to apply. Simply send Red Bull a postcard with your name and address on and they’ll get an application pack out to you. To give you a little inspiration, and a chuckle, here are some pics of the best soapbox racers over the years.
