Come and join thousands of spectators from across Lancaster and beyond to cheer on krazy, wacky and outrageous soapbox downhill racers at Lancaster Krazy Races, presented by The Royal Kings Arms. 

Racers will be launching themselves from the highest point of Williamson Park with the backgrop of the iconic Ashton Memorial in their carefully hand-crafted karts as they tackle a track with chicanes, obstacles, water and more. 

The event is fuelled by amateur teams who will be entertaining the crowds and competing to be the best dressed, have the best designed and the fastest soapbox karts powered by nothing more than krazy courage, wacky inspiration, gravity, and a bit of luck! 

Competitors will work their way through a knockout-style competition with only the fastest 10 cars making it through to the final, where they will battle to take home the winner's trophy!
