Wacky Races

Date: 25th Mar 2017 Author: Scout Websites

This weekend saw the District organise the first ever scout section soapbox race!

In preparation for the event, the scouts have been busy of the previous three troop nights, building their soapbox go-kart! The project has helped the scouts to improve their team working, and also DIY skills.

At the event we were up against four other go-karts, with the winning team coming from the 8th Royal Eltham, the scouts certainly did themselves proud, and there kart survived with any mechanical breakdowns. The race was run over two different courses. The first was a straight time trial drag run, with the second a short s-bend course to test control of the kart.

It was an extremely fun day, and the scouts have already come up with improvements they want to make for the next soapbox event.
