RED BULL BOX CART RACE HITS SANDTON THIS SUNDAY

Red Bull Box Cart Race announced its epic return to Sandton on September 16, promising some of the wildest legal street racing around.

Following the application phase, 80 teams have been shortlisted to compete in front of thousands of spectators in this year’s event and have eight weeks to build their hand-made, non-motorised machines fuelled by sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull.



Returning to Joburg after eight years, following on Soweto in 2010, this year’s Red Bull Box Cart Race is the fifth South African edition and will be bigger and better than ever.

It’s a race for hand-made, non-motorised machines fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull. Experienced racers and amateurs are challenged to design and build dazzling box cart dream machines to compete against the clock in a downhill race.

The Red Bull Box Cart Race is an international event taking place across five locations in 2018, including Rome Italy, Sofia Bulgaria, Cincinnati Ohio and Lisbon Portugal. Sandton is the steepest, most exciting track of the year.

The same rules apply everywhere. Teams are judged on speed, creativity and showmanship. No engines, batteries, electricity or catapults are allowed. What is allowed is unbridled imagination, charisma and of course, your bold and daring showmanship. It’s not enough that it actually moves or crosses the finish line first. The judges are looking for the outrageous, the preposterous, the ostentatious! Anything but the ordinary.



The Red Bull Box Cart Race is a free event for all participants and spectators, don’t miss the action on September 16, bring the kids and neighbours. To follow the action online and be part of the conversation, use the hashtag #RedBullBoxCartRace on all social platforms. For an overview of the selected teams, visit www.redbullboxcartrace.com
