Approved Garage, Whitburn, have a proactive team who love creating and organising memorable community events and participating in such competitions. They've recently put themselves forward to participate in the Red bull Soapbox Race.
Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Each hand-made machine is fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little Red Bull. This unique, non-motorised racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race.
They come from a wee Scottish town called Whitburn, inbetween Glasgow and Edinburgh for those that are wondering .
They are a family run car repair and MOT business. They are very community orientated getting involved in most things in and around the local area. Their most popular is the Santa sleigh which they tour every year to every Whitburn and most of the surrounding villages over a 14 day period. They have entered 19 consecutive gala day's providing joy and happiness to all ages.
A particular hobby of Whitburn Garage technicians is Stockcar racing, with team leader Ian having raced 38 years. This Motorsport background provides a pretty good foundation for building a team, as well as a soapbox that will hopefully go around a corner!
