LATEST NEWS (30/1/17):

Thanks for your interest in this year's Soapbox event.

We've just received news from organisers STOCCA and MetalC that the vehicle roster for this year's event has now reached capacity and is FULL. The event has already grown from 4 to 9 hours and it's simply a case of interest exceeding expectations. No further entries can be accepted for 2017.

We're not in a position to answer all questions about the event, as this page is primarily an event listing for the park.

For more information about the event, please phone 01782 267 888 or email , and check out the official page at


STOCCA in association with METAL C are holding Stoke on Trent’s second annual Soap Box Derby on Sunday 4th June 2017. Soap box teams will be racing their home-made karts down the Hanley Park track.

This will be a fun filled family day for the whole community. The track uses the footpath that stretches for about 400 metres, with bends, straights, chicanes, and a few obstacles to negotiate.

There will be two classes. Juniors 8 – 13yrs and adult class up to 89yrs. A kart can be entered in more than one class. Each class can have a different driver, e.g. a friend or sibling.

Prizes will be awarded for best time trial, best looking kart, best driving and top speed. A medal will also be awarded to all team entries. Places are limited, so register now and get building your soap box.

If you are a youth group, social club, church, local company, scouts or uniform group or just mad about soap box, get involved and enter now as its first come first served.

We can even offer you all the help you need to design and build your wacky racer, courtesy of Metal C, who will be running kart making workshops every Tuesday evening starting 7th March until the end of May.
