A pirate ship flanked by filthy wenches. A bathtub and toilet on wheels. Aliens flying past Uranus. Even a mini-tank in homage to our very own Oakley 453 tank. This is how Soapbox Derby is done at Oakley. The Web department entered 2 vehicles, one of which almost bottomed-out on the jump and the other flipped upon descending the launching ramp. Fortunately, both managed to finish the race, but neither had very impressive times. All-in-all, a great very entertaining afternoon to end the week. The winning team will compete in the Red Bull Soapbox Race.

Here’s a shot of the winners with their car, “Fire in the Hole”

The trophy was designed by our ace 3D artist, Sean Reilly. Unfortunately, “Fire in the Hole” took home all 3 trophies so we don’t get to keep one of these in the web dept.
