Red Bull Soapbox India - About

Soap up, rinse down, and lock in for the ride of your life!

If the idea of speed kings falling over their heads and still emerging with their 'crowns' intact gives you a rush, India’s first Red Bull Soapbox Race is designed to get your pulse racing. Homemade cars powered by gravity, created by India’s most creative and craziest teams will race each other down the twists and turns of Mount Mary Road, Bandra in Mumbai on the 2nd of December 2012 at 11 am. Obviously such vast amount of quirkiness in a race that has literally been centuries in the making, isn’t without a rich reward. Winners take home prizes like a fully paid trip to Austria to experience the World of Red Bull, a fully paid Sunburn Goa 2012 experience, 10 invites to one of the most happening parties this New Year’s Eve and much more.

Along with insane fans and even lesser sane racers, we will also be joined by a few names that you would recognize instantly. But just in case you don’t, we’ll tell you who they are anyway:

Our Hosts–

Cyrus Broacha – Stand-up comedian, prankster, TV anchor and an overall crazy guy, known fondly as the man behind the Bakra.Facebook  | Twitter

Jose Covaco – VJ, comedian, co-creator of audio-nonsense project – The voice behind the Kaanmasti podcasts and MTV’s resident jester. Facebook | Twitter

Ramona Arena – Singer, actor, DJ, VJ and everything in between. Also, easily the best looking of the three hosts, by a country mile and then some! Facebook | Twitter

And how do you judge wackiness, if you don’t have some equally out-of-the-box judges! So we present:

Rannvijay Singh – Actor, VJ and the man who taught World Champion Freestyle Biker & Red Bull Athlete [Chris Pfeiffer] everything he knows about India. Facebook | Twitter

Lisa Haydon – Supermodel-turned-actress, having starred in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi films, she can also dance and design clothes at the same time! Facebook | Twitter

Kunal Vijaykar – The man behind India’s only news satire show, foodie and food critic, an accomplished theatre actor, director, and seasoned comic. Facebook

Add to all of this, appearances by adrenaline junkies on wheels – The Ghost Ryderz, lots of [food], music and laughs; and you’ve got a power-packed day in the sun!

Once you’re done with the above workout, just circle the 2nd of December as Soapbox Day and make sure you’re at Mount Mary Road, Bandra, Mumbai by 11AM or we’ll just go ahead and roll down the hill without you. But we know it won’t come to that!
