About Red Bull Soapbox Racing 2014

The Red Bull Soapbox Race is back and it’s bigger and crazier than ever...

Red Bull Soapbox Racing

Giant pigs, massive cows and over-sized sneakers pitted against each other in a race against time. Either the doctor has messed up your prescription or the Red Bull Soapbox Race is back.

Both experienced racers and amateurs have been working round the clock to come up with the most outrageous hand-made machines – fuelled by nothing more than sheer courage, the force of gravity and a sprinkling of madness.

There have been more than 40 soapbox races around the world since the first one in Brussels back in 2000 – from Australia, South Africa and Helsinki to St. Louis, Jamaica and Italy.

Over the years, vehicles have ranged from a piano to a giant baby carriage, a rodeo clown to a massive corn on the cob, a jail cell to the Golden Gate Bridge. Can this year's top those? What do you think?

2014’s high-octane fun kicks off with race coverage from Peru and Paris.

Hold on tight! You could be in for a bumpy ride…
