You may remember last year i started my blog about gravity racing, and dropped a link to it (you can find it HERE).
Well, things have moved on a little since then! 🙂
In August 2016 I took part in my first ever soapbox race at the Harewood Hillclimb circuit in Leeds. It was a mixed success, but I learned a massive amount and made some great friends in the process. Obviously, after the event I focussed on improving the car and that brough up one question.
What do I want to achieve?
I thought long and hard and after a while the answer became clear to me: I want to set the world gravity speed record in Canada.
Quite a leap, don’t you think? From Harewood to Canada in one step? 🙂 Well, fortunately I’ve managed to build a team that will help make it possible, with an experienced car designer and driver (and also UK record holder!) and an F1 aerodynamic engineer already signed up to the cause.
The Canada event is skipping a year, and so the next one is in September 2019, and that’s when we’re going to be taking part. 2018 will see us testing our “Mule” car, using components that will hopefully be successful enough to make it to the final build. We’re looking for sponsors, so if you’re interested, please get in touch!

I’ve also created a forum about gravity racing !
