This will be the fifth annual Westgate Soap Box Derby.

Over 22 schools taking part in a day’s fast and thrilling racing, where students participate in the creation and racing of their very own soap box cars. It all makes one amazing day of thrilling racing action.

The winners will compete in the NZ National Soap Box Derby in March/April with the Nationals winner traveling to the US to compete in The All American Soap Box Derby in Ohio, U.S.A.

Last year's national winner, Daniel Hefford from Bruce McLaren Intermediate, represented New Zealand at the All American version in the USA in July.

The event is run over a whole day (9.00am to 4.30pm), together with masses of free events taking place for kids (and big kids!) including Segway riding, merry-go-rounds, fairground attractions and bouncy castles, mini jeeps, lowriders and much more. There will also be live displays from 12noon to 1.00pm.

There will be huge media attention with this event being broadcast on TV, across radio and print.
