The famous F1 team sponsor has also put its name to soapbox racing. Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Racers compete against the clock in a downhill race. Each hand-made machine is fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull.
