Red Bull Sopabox Race

Super ecological cars’ race, which run only by the force of gravity

 

On Sunday 26 June 2022, the Republic of San Marino will set the scene for the race that has no equal in the racing world. The appointment is at 11, at the “Porta del Paese”. 40 vehicles without engines, built by the teams selected on 11 March, will rush down the slopes of Mount Titano in the attempt to amaze the jury and thus take the victory of the 2022 edition of the Red Bull Soapbox Race.

The Soapbox is an incredible non-engine event that tests the most reckless, fearless and fun-loving teams, asking them to make a prototype of a vehicle, and for those selected, to make it become a reality.

Downhill, swooping to get to the finish in the valley. Trusting, to pass under the coveted checkered flag, in the force of gravity, in the ability of those who will be driving and - above all - in the structural strength of the picturesque car built step by step in the previous weeks.

In the shadow of the walls that surround what is considered the oldest Republic in the world, the crews registered in the race will drive their extravagant and original cars on the slopes that wind from the door that gives access to the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The force of gravity, together with the muscle pull of each team member, will be the engine that drives the cars.

The 2022 Red Bull Soapbox Race will be broadcasted exclusively on DMAX TV (Discovery group, digital terrestrial channel 52) in July, along with the exciting highlights of the race, the hilarious "behind the scenes" and hilarious interviews with the protagonists. The Jackal will write and comment on the show, ready to return to DMAX again after the success of the final of the 2021 edition of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, while an inflexible jury will judge the crews in the race, ready to evaluate each team under three distinct aspects: originality, extravagance and a spirit of inventiveness.

Out of 40 finalist teams, 5 were exclusively chosen from projects carried out by university students. As well as for the first three teams classified, also for the best university project there is an amazing prize: a voucher valid for a guided tour inside the AlphaTauri Scuderia Factory, the Formula 1 team based in Faenza (RA).
