About the Event
In 2020 we aim to build on the success of our smash hit inaugural 2019 Shrewsbury Wacky 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 Wacky Races 2020. Launching themselves down the Shrewsbury Quarry in their carefully hand-crafted karts our racers will tackle our 300m track, modified for 2020 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!
