The Sark Soapbox Challenge
The New Year literally got off to a flying start here on Sark with the island’s first ever Soapbox Challenge. The event saw 11 teams racing from the Church to the Manoir corner in their homemade carts that included Postman Pat’s van, a tribute to Donald Campbell’s speedboat Bluebird and an Hawaiian-themed racer. Points were awarded for both design style and speed down the course. The A-Team took first place with Pat coming second and Gravel Rash taking third place. Miraculously no-one was injured despite a couple of spills!
