I built this soapbox to compete in the 2010 'Hotrod Hayride' soapbox derby where we were beaten in the semi-final and later in the same year at Goodwood where we only made it to the quarter finals but won the trophy for best cart and also for most money raised for charity. It is built from Walnut, Ash and Ash veneered plywood. I used 16 inch BMX wheels with the all important white-wall tyres. It has a single disc brake with miniature track rod ends and a formula Ford steering wheel. Photo of latest version now uploaded.
