Welcome to the

Have you heard of the Red Bull Soapbox Race? Of course you have – who hasn’t. But in case you need a little reminder, watch this…




We’re team ‘Mean Steam Machine’. Based in Bristol and a team of four, we’re a right mixed bunch, with an Engineer, Marketer, Car Salesman and even a Teacher. We’ve embarked on a challenge of a lifetime to build a Soapbox Gravity Racer for the 2015 London Red Bull Soapbox Race. Are we brave? Are we stupid? Who knows? What we do know is that we have one hell of a challenge ahead with a LOT of work.  Take a moment to browse through our blog and see what all the fuss is about and while you’re here, why not take a look at our Sponsors page and see if you or someone you know can help us.
