Red Bull Soapbox Race screeches into Atlanta June 9
Ladies and Gentlemen, start your human powered engines: join the Atlanta Red Bull Soapbox Race in Midtown, Saturday!
Ready? Set? GO!
Back by popular demand, Red Bull Soapbox Race, featuring some of the wildest legal street racing around, is set to once again screech into Midtown for a 2012 pit stop.
On Saturday, June 9 the streets of Midtown near Piedmont Park will transform into a bona fide drag strip!
Approximately 40 teams will compete in this non-motorized racing event, which encourages gear heads and adrenaline junkies alike to break out their toolboxes and build outrageous human-powered vehicles designed to thrill the masses.
Although it’s the same location as the 2009 Red Bull Soapbox Race Atlanta, racers beware: you’re in for a whole new set of challenges!
WHAT: Red Bull Soapbox Race
WHEN: Saturday, June 9 (Pits open at 10AM; first race starts at 12PM).
WHERE: 10th Street in front of Piedmont Park.
The Atlanta event will be the 12th U.S. Red Bull Soapbox Race to ever take place, with the first stateside race held in St. Louis in 2006. The global event dates back to 2000, when it first took place in Belgium, and has since visited almost 30 countries!
