Featuring all of the passion of tango and none of the grace, the Red Bull Soapbox Race is set to tear up the streets of Buenos Aires for the very first time.

This hugely popular international event is a competition for amateur teams that compete against each other to build and race colourful, creative and outrageous non-motorised soapbox vehicles. 

On November 10, 2013, at 2 pm, the 40 selected teams from all over the country will be participating in the competition downhill on Av. Corrientes & Calle Florida, in an entertaining event for the whole family.

The racers will be judged on their speed, creativity and showmanship and the winners will win a trip to the F1 Grand Prix in Brazil.

Red Bull has held more than forty soapbox races around the world since the first one in Brussels in the year 2000 – from Australia to South Africa, Helsinki to St. Louis, Jamaica to Italy. Over the years, vehicles have ranged from realistic replicas to anything the imagination can conjure up. Previous designs have included a piano, a giant baby carriage, a rodeo clown, a massive corn on the cob, a jail cell and the Golden Gate Bridge.
