Our salesman, Gary Pinks and his team, "The Wing Nuts" will be taking part in the Soapbox Derby in Hinckley, UK, this Sunday on the 6th of July.
Hinkley Soapbox Derby

The team's soapbox design for this year's derby is based on the Healey 100/4. Of the design he said,

"It is basically a stretched traditional pushcart chassis with foot steering and handbrake on both rear wheels with the body constructed from cardboard to keep the weight down.

"We have retained our original team name for this year and we are raising money for my eldest son’s school, Little Battlers of Battling Brook Primary School to be able to provide a pot of money for the less advantaged children to be able to go on day trips with the money coming from this fund and therefore they do not miss out."
