THE GARTERBELTS & GASOLINE - VINTAGE SOAP BOX DERBY, 2012: The Vintage Soap Box Derby was held on Curtis Road at Mount Tamborine, Queensland. An annual event, festivities stretched over four days.

THE PIT REPORT: The Pits is my first stop at any race meeting and the Soap Box Derby Pit Row of 2012 confirmed significant design development in all categories compared to the 2011 Event, well done to all competitors.

PIT ROW: The early morning Pit Row 'group shots'.

 

 

#10A: 'SWEET SOHPIE': Influenced by World War 2 Aviation, note the 'winglet's' offering some degree of 'aero' at the axle line.

 

#14A: COFFIN CHEATER: More than a passing resemblance to 'Grandpa's DRAG-UL-A' from the Munster's television series, note the 'engine velocity stacks' and the 'chain link' steering wheel.

 

#33: FULLY ENCLOSED: Influenced by World War 2 Aviation and the 'Fighting Tigers', note the 'hub centre steering concept' and the 'aiming' cross hairs.

 

#2040: 'ACES HIGH': Influenced by Aviation and Dragsters, this entry had a faithfully replicated steering wheel, fully functional braking chute and a rather novel brake release mechanism in the form of an 'off-cut of DAR timber'! Note the dual rear wheels with independently operated disc brakes! The only concern I had for the driver was that the perspex hood was fastened down 'from the outside'!

 

SELECTED  IMAGES: Images of a few more of the amazing entries in the 2012 event.

#9: DRAGSTER INFLUENCE

#17A: 'GRAVITY RACER'

#19: DRAGSTER INFLUENCE ON THE REPCO BROWNS PLAINS ENTRY

#20: BATH TUB, SHOWER, KLAXON, FLOWERS AND A SEAT BELT!

#34: THE 'OVERNIGHT BUILD' SPECIAL

#J/44: BIG WHEELS, AND A 'HUGE' STEERING WHEEL!

EXCELLENT USE OF A VENTILATION FAN GRILLE!

'FORD' ENTRY WITH LOW PROFILE SLICKS
