Only found out bout this event today. Was first one last year n was great success. Free event. 2nd Autohorn Micklegate Soapbox Challenge. Races start at 10 a.m. til 6 p.m. Charity event with fifty teams competing, each doing two runs down the bumpitty cobblestones o Micklegate. Last year's homemade carts included a giant hyperdermic needle; a unicorn; a bathtub and a market stall. Food court. 11 mtr screens. Fairground rides on Ouse Bridge. Live music from Huge. Weather looking to be fine. Sounds a larf......

Ooo, that was worth going to. Really well organised. Hadn't expected the great scaffolded structure at the top o Micklegate pon which the soapboxes were launched with gusto. The bridge over the Ouse was closed to, with a fairground pon it, that was a first for York!. Posh cars and posher boats down by the river. But weather was glorious and attendance was high. Great to see such a joint community effort pull together such a grand and fun event. Fastest times down the cobbles vaired from over two minutes to well under thirty seconds. Well done to anyone who had a hand in organising the derby. And Micklegate was a splendid setting for the run.

Maybe an official BikerMatch soapbox next year?
