Koh Samui Soap Box Derby Music & Beer Festival, 14th June, 2014

At last there's some more information on this event, please check the Facebook page;


The participants will race in teams and will need to create and decorate their own soapboxes and have them ready well before the race. The soapboxes must also meet the strict criteria of race officials.

The circuit

The race will consist of a 2km long circuit along Chaweng Lake and will last for a grueling 10 hours. It will start at midday on the 14th of June and finish at 10 PM at night. The participants will register in teams and will need to keep their soapbox rolling along the buzzing, music-filled shores of Chaweng Lake. Concerts will be taking place throughout the race. 
Proceeds from the event will be donated to some very worthy causes: firstly, to Koh Samui’s new School for Autistic Children and secondly to the Green Project supported by the Hotel Associations. 

The winning team as well the runner up and the third team will be awarded great prizes and trophies. Three additional prizes and trophies will be awarded to the most original & inventive soapboxes & teams. Every team member who crosses the finishing line will also receive a special commemorative medal.

The Mayor of Koh Samui Khun Ramnet Jaikwang, together with the presidents of the THA and the TAKS, along with Bangkok Airways’ PR team and all the participating sponsors will be there to hand out trophies and awards to the winners.

Many spectators are expected to turn up to cheer and join in the celebrations while the competitors race along the shores of Chaweng Lake and listen to the various concerts organized during the entire 10 hours. Definitely, this is an event not to be missed!
