North Shore Soap Box Derby – Saturday, 2 April 2011

5th April 2011

Masters racers sit ready for race start.

Six teams of school kids reaching up to 60 km/h down Kaipatiki Rd in Glenfield, North Shore. Good, old-fashioned fun. All cars are built from identical kit-sets with the challenge being to set-up and tune the balance to best effect. Glenfield College would take out the 2011 edition with a car that was clearly superior to the others.

The track looms ahead as this driver is loaded into the starting gate.

The taste of defeat having come off second best on this run.
