Krazy Races is a free to attend event, aiming to bring all manner of races, wild and zany to towns & cities across the U.K and beyond in the form of a traditional SoapBox Derby.
The Krazy Races team are set for a jam packed Summer of fun with races returning to Shrewsbury on the 29 May followed by Northwich Cheshire on the 26 June, two weeks later the team will travel to the west midlands for Birmingham & Sandwell Krazy Races on the 10 July followed by Wolverhampton Krazy Races on the 21 August.
