2009 Event Timetable

Individual practice and timed qualifying runs will take place on Saturday 25th, starting at 4.30pm and with the last run starting at 9.00pm. Group heats, semi finals and finals will be taking place on Sunday 26th, starting at 10.00am. In general, each run will take approximately 20 minutes in total, during which time the road will be closed from the bottom snow gates. After each set of runs is complete, the road will be opened to traffic again.

Spectators are asked to keep well clear of the course during each run and stand behind the safety barriers. The main spectator area will be at the hairpin, and cars can be parked just up the hill from there at the Coire na Ciste car park. While every effort is made to make Cairngorm Soapbox Extreme as safe and enjoyable as possible, you should bear in mind that Soapbox Racing is potentially dangerous and that you are present in the vicinity of the course entirely at your own risk.

The full timetable is shown below. We will try to keep as close to this as possible, but it may be that events beyond our control prevent us from completing all of the runs.
