Spots available at Soapbox Derby

The Kiwanis Club of Comox would like to hear from anyone who is interested in building a car and racing in the Comox Nautical Days Soapbox Derby Race on July 23.

THERE'S STILL TIME to get ready for the 26th annual Comox Nautical Days Soapbox Derby Race.


This year is the 26th anniversary and there are up to 48 spots available for six- to 13-year-old racers to enter. Kits are available at a cost of $80.

Drivers all receive free hamburgers, drinks and ice cream as well as a participant trophy and a winner’s trophy if they race into one of the top three finishing positions in their class.

The Kiwanis club is still extremely interested and proud of the many previous successful soapbox derbies it has hosted, but last year’s entry list was very low for the efforts required to promote and stage this event and the club is requesting a show of interest so the club can carry this event on in the future and justify the effort and expense involved to do it.

If you wanna race, Noel Avenue is the place at the Comox Kiwanis Nautical Days Soapbox Derby.

For kits and registration, e-mail or call 250-334-2257.
