Bay Horse Soap Box Trophy
The team that makes the single fastest run down the hill, including any time penalties for that run, will be awarded the Bay Horse Soap Box Trophy.
In the event that more than one team has the same fastest time, their respective second fastest times will be considered.
If the times are all equal, then the team with the fewer or fewest time penalties will be adjudged the winner. If, after all that, there is still no way to differentiate the teams, then the result will stand as a tie. The shield will be engraved with the teams name and the year, and displayed in the Bay Horse.
You don’t get to keep it – sorry.
Clifford AFC Team Trophy
Awarded to the team with the lowest aggregate time for both runs. In the event of a tie on aggregate time, the team with the fewer or fewest time penalties will be adjudged the winner. If, after all that, there is still no way to differentiate the teams, then the result will stand as a tie.
Pininfarina prize for Soap Box Science & Engineering
Each team will pick the three soap boxes that they think are best engineered, ranked in order of merit. Three points will be awarded for each first place vote, two for each second and one for each third place vote. The soap box with the highest number of points will be declared the “Best Engineered”. In the event of a tie on points, the soap box with the most first place votes will be the winner, followed by second place votes if it is still a tie. If the soap boxes are still equal after that, then the result will stand as a tie.
Recycled Soap Box Award
The machine that is considered has the highest content of recycled material.
This is voted for by the general public on the morning of the event when the soap boxes are lined up.
Most impressive soap box moments
This is voted for by the marshals and helpers. It is awarded to the team responsible for the most memorable or most sporting moment of the day. If nothing warrants a description, then the most spectacular crash will probably do.
All entrants must fully complete entry and indemnity forms before their entry can be accepted.
In the case of drivers who will be under the age of 18 years on the day of the competition the indemnity form must be countersigned by a parent or guardian of the driver.
