Project description

Since 30 years the soapbox race takes place in Weimar on 1st May, where racers from all over the city can take part. This year we had the idea of creating a soapbox out of concrete, or rather a high-performance mortar.
Starting with the planning phase, we first created a concept that would serve as the backbone for the construction process. As a result, an innovative vehicle could be built, which could then compete in the soapbox race. After the race, the "rolling stone" soapbox will now be presented at this year's summaery2023!

Anyone interested in soapboxes, concrete and the exciting "soap concrete" project should definitely take a look!
