It’s Red Bull Soapbox Racer Time!

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review


Ever fancied taking part in a soapbox derby but been just a little bit too scared to do it? Then Less Rain has created the perfect site for you…the Red Bull Soapbox Racer.



Just as in the real life Red Bull Soapbox Race events, which happen all over the world, Less Rain’s site allows users to create their own uniquely designed vehicles online in a 3D garage, and then paint and decorate them with go-faster stripes and bumper stickers. Along with looking good, the design and construction of the machines will also effect how they handle on the race track.



Players can then pick which course they’d like to race (panoramic views of the Alps, the Bosphorus, the Wild West and the icy climbs of Canada are all available) and then set off. New courses can also be designed, with the steepness modified and obstacles added. As in the real Red Bull Soapbox event, only one car is allowed on the track at a time, but the website does allow players to challenge their friends, with your opponent’s car appearing as a semi-transparent ghost on the track while you race. Virtual prizes are then rewarded to the winners.



The Red Box Soapbox Racer follows Less Rain’s equally charming Red Bull Flugtag Flight Lab site, which allows users to design and fly their own planes. As on that site, the vehicles designed on the Soapbox Racer can all be saved on the site to be viewed by others and returned to for later races. Let’s go racing!
