The New Berlin Soap Box Derby Commission invites your participation in the
53rd ANNUAL NEW BERLIN SOAP BOX DERBY
Race day is Sunday, September 10th, 2017
New Berlin residents between the ages of 6 and 16 can design, build, and race their own cars down our 1,000-foot long, 3-lane, paved track. Cars are sponsored by local businesses, as well as by businesses and race fans from around the United States. Finalists in each class compete for trophies, great prizes, and a chance to win the coveted "Champion of Champions" award.
Entry fee is $5.00 per driver.
Online registration is once again available this year.
Everyone is encouraged to register online!
Registration forms, "Driver Event Rules" and "Racecar Specifications" will be available approximately May 15th at Blair's True Value New Berlin (15300 W National Ave), as well as on our website.
These rules and specifications show how to build your car, there's a suggested materials list, and explains the rules for running of the event.
On race day, each driver...
- receives a special Derby t-shirt,
- gets their photo taken with their car, and
- gets a minimum of four runs down the track.
The Awards Night ceremonies take place two weeks after race day. The photos taken on race day will be available for pickup at Awards Night.
