HINCKLEY LIGHT SWITCH ON 2019
The soapbox officially sponsored by Trinity Players has won first place in the junior class at this years Hinckley soap box derby held on July 7th 2019. The winning team comprised of driver Joe Hicks with Darren Bradley and Sefton Winslade providing the muscle for the push starts and Peter Bradley as chief mechanic and cheerleader. This was an especially courageous win, as Joe sustained a heavy collision on his second run causing his soapbox to overturn.
The team first enterered the event 6 years ago in 2014 with push and pray " a coffin shaped soapbox" built by Peter Bradley, Scott Cufflin and Darren Bradley. The soap box has seen many changes both mechanical and cosmetic over the last few years, most notably the steering wheel which really helped things move in the right direction.,it also has had a revamp this year with a more aerodynamic body.
It has also seen its fair share of young drivers and successes including: scott Cufflin, Aiden hicks, Luke catt and Luke Winslade all braving the driving seat and is hoping, all being well, to equal this years success.
Many thanks to our sponsors:
