Red Bull Box Cart Race in JHB this Weekend

Red Bull Box Cart Race in JHB this Weekend
Red Bull's Box Cart Race event is back in JHB this weekend! The Red Bull Box Cart Race is a global event for amateur drivers racing homemade soapbox crafts. This year Joburg is one of five locations –  Rome, Sofia, Cincinnati and Lisbon all feature on the 2018 calendar.

Each hand-made machine is fueled by creativity and competitive fun - not to mention the need for speed. This unique non-motorized racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous, human-powered soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race.


Red Bull has held more than 100 box cart races around the world since the first one in Brussels in the year 2000 – from Australia to South Africa, Helsinki to St. Louis, Jamaica to Italy. Teams are judged on three criteria: creativity, showmanship and speed. So racers need to wow with their stage routine, impress with their soapbox design and, of course, dazzle the crowd with their showmanship.


South Africa's most innovative and witty teams will race each other down the twists and turns of Sandton Drive in Johannesburg this Sunday 16th of September 2018. Check out the full list of teams here.

To get in the mood, also check out a video breakdown of 99 races in 99 seconds here.
