*Soapbox racing was popularised in America and refers to an unpowered cart which is raced downhill, with gravity being the only form of propulsion. In Scotland we traditionally call a soapbox a ‘Cartie’ or ‘Kert-ie’ in Doric. Don't forget, you need time to build your Cartie, so enter as soon as possible to guarantee your entry for 2022!
