Bookings now live for Coleford Grand Prix!

It’s full speed ahead for Coleford’s exiting new event this June!  The Coleford Grand Prix, a soapbox derby event is being organised in conjunction with the Brockweir CIC team who have been running their successful Brake for the Border event for the last 2 years.

On the 24 June the town centre will be closed to allow karts engineered to a very specific standard to race through the town in the hope of securing a prize.  The inspiration behind bringing the event to Coleford is Deputy Mayor Barry Thompson who told us “this event is about engaging businesses and individuals from our local community, to come together and have some fun, whilst at the same time attracting we hope large crowds to the town centre”.

Entries are now open with all information regarding how to enter and kart specs available via the event website or by calling Nick Penny on 07801 650977 or email

Anyone that is interested in supporting the event with either sponsorship or by advertising in the official programme should also contact Nick as soon as possible.
