Shrewsbury Wacky Races - cancelled


Please note: Shrewsbury Wacky Races 2021 has been cancelled


Soapbox Derby Come and join thousands of spectators from across the West Midlands to cheer on our weird, wonderful and wacky soapbox downhill racers at Shrewsbury Wacky Races 2019, the first event of it’s kind to be held in the town.

Watch as our racers hurtle down our custom track in their carefully crafted carts at the Shrewsbury Quarry, tackling our 300m track and it’s chicanes and, hopefully, avoiding the icy waters of the River Severn at the end!

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 winners trophy!

The event will be free to attend, with pop up street food, bars and loads of fun activities for all the family.
