Shrewsbury Krazy Races

29th May 2022, The Quarry

About the Event

In 2022 we aim to build on the success of our nationally award winning inaugural 2019 Shrewsbury Krazy Races to create a destination event for Shrewsbury, adding more fun, more entertainment and more "wow, did they really just do that!?".

Come and join thousands of spectators from across the West Midlands to cheer on our krazy, wacky and outrageous soapbox downhill racers at Shrewsbury Krazy Races 2022. Launching themselves down the Shrewsbury Quarry in their carefully hand-crafted karts our racers will tackle our 300m track, modified for 2022 with chicanes, obstacles and more. Hopefully they will avoid the icy waters of the River Severn as they approach the finish line!

The event is fuelled by our amateur teams who will be entertaining the crowds and competing to be the best dressed, have the best designed and the fastest soapbox karts powered by nothing more than krazy courage, wacky inspiration, gravity and a bit of luck!

Our competitors will work their way through a knockout style competition with only the fastest 10 cars making it through to the final, where they will battle to take home the winner's trophy!

Our Krazy Sponsors

Our 2022 Charity Partner

Krazy Races is delighted to announce that Macmillan Cancer Support will be returning as our official headline charity partner for all of our 2022 Krazy Races.

The races are a great opportunity to raise vital funds for Macmillan so that they can continue to do whatever it takes for people living with cancer. We raised over £20,000 in 2019 and we are hoping to raise even more this year!
