Go Go Karts

Gasp and laugh in equal measures at this Sunday’s Soap Box race, held in Alexandra Palace Park. It’s a kind of lo-fi Wacky Races, where teams build wagons and then tear down the steep hill on them. Of course, speed matters, but we’re more excited about the vehicles. Who will win? The cart shaped like Ally Pally itself? The asparagus-shaped car, or a toilet trolley? There’s a team with a drumming monkey co-pilot, and one set to tear down the hill in a blue suede shoe. It will be chaotic, loud, and very silly. We can’t wait. Book tickets in advance. £5 adults, kids free. Sunday 11am. More here
