Western Lightning Ltd. Competed in the recent Cornwall Motorfest Soap Box Race, supporting both Cornwall Hospice Care and the charity Guide Dogs for the Blind.
After much hard work and a large number of tubes of expanding foam ‘Lightning the WonderDog’ was completed by Director Steve Adams and driven by operative Robert Cassidy.
The event was a massive success overall for both the Company and The Guide Dogs for the Blind. We managed to raise £170.00 in collection money!
The icing on the cake was winning the ‘Best Soap Box’ award which was judged by Vicki Butler-Henderson from TV’s Fifth Gear. This was apparently due to the urination mechanism that was constructed which was used to attack Vicki.
Although not exactly aero-dynamic, the soap box did better than most other entries and made it all the way to the finish unassisted.
After having a taste of Soap Box racing, we will in no doubt be entering the next available competition in the South West! We would very much appreciate any assistance at future events from our Customers.
Thanks to all Western Lightning staff for helping to support us at the construction, the event and also with transportation of ‘Lightning the WonderDog’. We would also like to thank the Guide Dogs for the Blind for joining us on the day and allowing us to be their sponsor.
