(Subject to Change)

 Get ready for more thrills, spills, custom carts, and crashes! Applications are open for Teams of amateur racers to once again design and build their own gravity powdered, engine-less Carties and race them against the clock in an extreme downhill battle in front of thousands of fans at Kincardine Castle



... and the best themed entry will win a prize!

Over the years Carties have ranged from realistic replicas to anything the imagination can conjure up. Don't forget, you need time to build your Cartie, so enter as soon as possible to guarantee your entry for 2022!

Scottish Cartie Association Stephen Hall said:

"Each team will be allocated two runs, each time trying to secure a better time. The course follows a route down the drive at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour.

The driver will have the option of tacking objects such as the pinch point, chicane or to test their skills on the Ski Slalom!"




Soapbox racing was popularised in America and refers to an unpowered cart that 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
