Northwich is going to get a little wackier next year as the town welcomes a brand new event on Sunday 14th June 2020 in the form of a SoapBox Derby.

The event will be held on Castle Hill with an event village and viewing within Verdin Park. The event is the first of its kind to be held in the town and will be free for visitors to watch. Northwich Krazy Races will see Sarah Belcher Events company working in partnership with Northwich Town Council to bring this amazing event to the town.

Thousands of spectators are expected from all over Cheshire and beyond to cheer on the weird, wacky and wonderful SoapBox entrants who can enjoy watching carefully crafted karts being hurtled down a track which will consist of chicanes, obstacles, water features and more.

The event is looking for 40-50 teams to enter the race in a knock out style competition with trophies going to fastest winner, best dressed, most innovative design and more. Teams are encouraged to raise as much money as possible for charity with this years Shrewsbury Wacky Races seeing teams raise over £20,000 for a variety of causes.

Sarah Belcher, Founder of Krazy Races said: “We are bringing the Smash Hit Krazy Races to Northwich Town! There will be more fun than you can imagine, Krazy entertainment and lots of ‘wow, did they really just do that!?’

We believe that the event will capture the imaginations of the community and business in the area and together we can create a spectacular, unique and different event for the town.”

Chris Shaw spokesperson from Northwich Town Council said: “We are working in partnership with Sarah to bring this welcomed additional event to the town’s diverse event programme that Northwich has to offer.”
