2017 Soapbox Derby

On Friday 23rd June Shenstone Lodge School (The Brades Lodge site)  hosted its’s third Soapbox Derby event  at Warley Woods in West Bromwich.

Seven teams from across the country entered Soapboxes ranging from the ‘weird’ to the ‘wonderful’, large to small, bizarre to beautiful. All the teams threw themselves full force down the track aiming to be the fastest participants, and they all showed grit and determination doing their respective schools proud with each earning a category award.

In no particular order:

  • Fastest average time winners: The Brades Lodge
  • Fastest individual time winners: Shenstone Lodge
  • Concourse winners: The Peak Academy
  • Wacky Racer Award: Riverside
  • Team of the Day: Lindsworth
  • Runner Up Trophy: Sandwell Community School, Tipton Campus.

Next year will hopefully be even bigger and better and we look forward to seeing new and old faces attend in an attempt to take that coveted fastest average time trophy back to their school.

Thank you to everyone involved for making the day such a success.
