Alloy Fabweld Group at the Great Dunmow Soapbox Race with Top-Notch Engineering Skills
Great Dunmow Soapbox Race - is the second largest in the UK after the famous Red Bull. The Alloy Fabweld Group had three contenders in the Soapbox Race this year
Soapbox racing is a fun and exciting event that has gained popularity in recent years. It involves building and racing non-motorised vehicles down a steep hill, with the aim of being the fastest to reach the finish line. The Great Dunmow Soapbox Race is one of the most popular soapbox racing events in the UK, and it attracts thousands of spectators every year, over 30,000 attended this year. In fact, it is the second largest soapbox race in the country, after the famous Red Bull Soapbox Race.
The Alloy Fabweld Group is a company that specialises in metal fabrication and engineering. They have a team of skilled and experienced engineers who work on a range of projects, so they were keen to use their knowledge of design and construction to create soapbox race cars. Three parts of the business within the Alloy Fabweld Group were involved in the Great Dunmow Soapbox Race this year, and they helped to create three fantastic soapbox race cars that competed in the event.
The first soapbox race car built by the Alloy Fabweld Group was the Alloy Bullet, which finished in 18th place. This car was designed to be aerodynamic and fast, with a sleek and modern look. It was made from lightweight materials, including metal used in construction to reduce weight and increase speed.
The second soapbox race car built by the Alloy Fabweld Group was the Flexi Green Machine, which finished in 11th place. This car was designed to be flexible and adaptable, with a unique suspension system that allowed it to handle bumps and curves in the road. It was also made from eco-friendly materials, including recycled metalwork, to reduce its environmental impact.
The third soapbox race car built by the Alloy Fabweld Group was the Hunwick Engineering, which finished in 12th place. This car was designed to be sturdy and reliable, with a classic and timeless look. It was made from high-quality materials, including stainless steel to ensure its durability and strength.
All three soapbox race cars built by the Alloy Fabweld Group were a testament to the company's engineering expertise and creativity. This is also a great example of how businesses can get involved in their local communities and support charitable causes. The Great Dunmow Soapbox Race raises money for a range of charities every year, and it is a fantastic opportunity for businesses and individuals to give back to their community.
It was a close race this year with only seconds between the top of the podium, well done to all that contributed.
There were plenty of thrills, spills, and spectacular crashes, the community and businesses contributed to making this event happen - sponsors, volunteers, advisors, local councils, suppliers, stall holders, and spectators all helping to raise money for amazing charities!
