Lovers of speed and DIY? This day is made for you!
Get on board your car and race down the streets of Fréland during this second edition of the soapbox race.

Two possible races:

- the soapboxes approved by the FIRCAS for the timed races counting for the classification of the Alsace championship.

- the folkloric cases that you can build yourself for the non-timed races.


If you want to build your own folkloric crate, you will need :

- a whole floor
- 3 or 4 wheels
- a steering without too much play
- no sharp corners and nothing sharp
- a well fixed seat with a backrest
- very good brakes (if 2 wheels with brakes, put them mainly on the rear wheels)
- 1 ring of 2,5cm diameter on the front and the back of the body to be able to hang the strap for the lifts.
- 1 strap of 1,5m minimum and solid (1 ton) provided with 2 karabiners 300kg minimum to be pulled during the ascents.

For all the people climbing in the crates, you need
- 1 helmet
- 1 long pants
- long sleeves
- gloves
- closed shoes with a covering on the foot.

For the framing of the case:
We leave it to your imagination, of course trying to make it solid to participate all day.
