Isle of Wight holiday could feature soapbox challenge

People taking Isle of Wight holidays in June will get the chance to attend the island's Soapbox Derby Challenge.

The annual race will go ahead on June 27th and will take place at Downside Middle School in Newport.

It promises to be a thrilling occasion, with teams of three taking to the course in an attempt to get to the bottom of the hill the fastest.

Each competitor must be between the ages of 12 and 20 and teams compete against each other in a series of heats racing down the hill.

Aggregate times are used so that the fastest soapbox on average progresses through to the next stage of the competition.

People taking Isle of Wight holidays in June may find taking in the Soapbox Derby Challenge can be a fun way to spend a day on the island.

The 2009 derby was won by the 8th Newport Scouts, who beat a team called Big Bogey into second place. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19731873-ADNFCR
