Rolling down hills was never more exciting than in these creative, colourful, wacky races
If you've ever watched 'Cool Runnings' and thought that flinging yourself down a hill in a colourful wagon that looks like it was built by the Teletubbies looks like the best fun ever? Find a team and get planning, because this is your chance to fulfill your need for speed in a real soapbox race in the hilly grounds of Alexandra Palace. Your application had better be creative – only 70 teams of the 1,000 who applied were chosen to compete at the last London event and designs included a VW Camper, a full bathroom suite and a giant Usain Bolt. If you'd rather not risk being a part of north London's most spectacular pile-ups keep an eye on the Red Bull Soapbox website; thousands of spectator tickets will be available nearer the event.
