Red Bull Soapbox Race
Time Out says
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 fulfil 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.
