Goodwood Festival of Speed and BoxKart Hunt for the Next Generation of Designers

GoodwoodGoodwood Festival of Speed and BoxKart are encouraging the next generation of designers to get involved in a competition to win tickets to the world’s largest automotive garden party by designing their own soap box racer.

Five lucky Scouts, Guides or Youth Club members will win a pair of tickets to the prestigious event, and they will get to see their creation on the BoxKart stand, and get to ride it on a replica Hillclimb.

Jon Barnett, Goodwood Head of Events Marketing, said: ‘Today’s car designers all had to start somewhere and working with BoxKart enables Goodwood to get the next generation of potential designers involved in a fun and creative way.’

Simon Booth, BoxKart Director, said: ‘Kids produce some of the freshest designs for any product, so this will be an interesting competition to see what they come up with. These will be the designs of the future, now.’

As part of the competition, BoxKart will create the five winning designs, and allow Facebook and Twitter users, as well as visitors to the BoxKart stand to choose an overall winner. Each winner will get to keep their BoxKart, as well as receive helmets to allow safe riding.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed, run annually since 1993, is the world’s largest automotive garden party – a unique summer weekend that brings together an impossibly heady mix of cars, stars and motor sport ‘royalty’ to create the largest car culture event in the world. From current Formula 1 racers and 200mph supercars to steam-powered carriages of the 19th Century and iconic motorcycles, plus the Moving Motor Show, Skoda Forest Rally Stage, Aviation Exhibition and the adrenaline-fuelled thrills of Goodwood Action Sports, the Festival of Speed attracts the heroic and evocative from every era in an exuberant display of style, sound, smell and colour.

BoxKart has been labelled the must have ride on toy by American TV show Fox & Friends. Fusing retro styling with contemporary features including an adjustable frame, pneumatic tyres for a super smooth ride and a handbrake, BoxKart is the ideal ride on to bring the whole family together this summer.
