Lancaster Krazy Races will still come to the City!
08 Aug 2023

Organisers of the popular, national, free to attend soapbox derby Krazy Races have confirmed that the event will still be held on Sunday 17th September at Williamson Park but are urging local businesses for support after the primary sponsor pulls financial support.

Krazy Races has taken the U.K by storm this Summer with over 45,000 people attending the wacky downhill event in Stockport, Swansea and Cheshire. In addition to giving thousands of people an incredible, free day out to remember, organisers have also managed to raise over £40,000 for local charities which gives the event a real community feel.

Lancaster Krazy Races was originally gifted to the city of Lancaster by a local business. The agreement with the unnamed business would have covered all the event's costs ensuring that the event would be free for all spectators. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago Krazy Races were told that the local backer was in financial difficulty and would no longer honour their agreement which has left the event seeking local businesses to come forwards to support.

A representative from Krazy races told us; We were gutted when we heard that our primary supporter would not be able to fulfil their commitments. As a small business this has created a very difficult financial situation as the sponsor had agreed to pay for all the costs associated with the event.

Our team has discussed multiple options but with over 40 teams (our most ever) and the most beautiful location in Williamson Park as well as tremendous public support from excited spectators we have decided to deliver the event as planned and are working hard to make it our biggest event ever!

We now need the support of local businesses to help us make Lancaster the best and biggest event of the season. We have fantastic sponsorship opportunities including; Track sponsorship, PIT area opportunities and VIP sponsorship as well as screen and brochure adverts. We are also about to launch our high-end VIP tickets for Ashton Memorial in the next couple of weeks.”

We need your support. If you know a business or you yourself would like to advertise at our event, please let us know. We have some fantastic opportunities and the feedback from sponsors this year and the results they have generated has been phenomenal.
