The Farley Hill Soapbox Race on Sunday.

FARLEY Hill’s Soap Box Derby was a “great day” as organiser Ben Teale explains it was a sold-out event last Sunday.

Adult and junior racers were cheered on by spectators as they crossed the finished line.

The Pheasant Plucker cart came first in the adult race, with Wood on Wheels coming in second and Electrofish in third place.

And Bright Lights in the City brought home the title in the juniors race, Terminal 6 came in second and third place was Tie Fighter.

Food, drink and music were also enjoyed by everyone throughout the afternoon.

Mr Teale thanked everyone for their support.

“What can I say, it was such an amazing day,” he said.

“That was only made possible by the commitment and hard work of so many people, and to everyone who really stepped up and entered a cart, there was no event without you.”

He wrote a post on Facebook to extend his thanks to everyone who took part and helped make the event a success.

This included a nod to Dad Power, a group of men who built the course, the SFL Group for its music entertainment, Siren Craft Brew for providing a bar, the Victory Hall Trustees and more.
