Soapbox Derby 2007!

Yes it’s that time of year again, Port Erin Regatta is this weekend.  Jack is entering ‘Scrufts’ Dog Show on Saturday morning!  Then Sunday afternoon is the Soapbox Derby!

Last year 7th Wave finished a very apt 7th place!  However, 7th place is not good enough in the eyes of the creator, who since last year seems have spent every spare moment pondering on what he can do to improve the kart for this year…….

And so this year Captain Pugwash & Roger the Cabin Boy will be driving the ‘Black Pig’ down the hill, to who knows what end?

And the competition seems to be hotting up this year – Kristian & Mark our pit crew / pushers from last year have split and signed up with the Grenaby Lime Works Lime Green Racing Machine!! And we’ve got the Post Office who just pipped us to the ‘post!’ last year. Jon is keeping his loyalties with us and not Port Erin Lifeboat Crew, so we could do with beating them too!

Look forward to seeing you all over the weekend!
