Weekends are a glorious time for catching up on all the fun we’re missing out on during the week. This means hitting up the latest happenings around the city to see what lies in store. 

This September, JTC's RACE.EAT.PLAY @ one-north Festival is back for another run to bring you double the innovation and double the fun.

All the action takes place this 8th September 2018 from 10AM-6PM. From intense Drone Obstacle Course Races to Soapbox races down Fusionopolis Way, here are some event highlights you've got to look out for:

If you've spent many nights binge-watching Red Bull's wild Soapbox Race Derbys across the world and always wanted to catch one of these wacky races in the flesh - here’s your chance! Watch all 14 teams showcase their ingenious motorless creations and take on the 150-metre race course down Fusionopolis Way for the grand prize of $1,500. 

Look forward to seeing super creative cars inspired by popular video games and show - we won’t be giving away any spoilers!

In true Soapbox fashion, the Race will kick off from a steep 3-metre high starting ramp to help the teams’ cars build up momentum to tackle the speed bumps and obstacles they’ll face along the course - including a water obstacle course that’ll cause a big splash and a ramp which will send out a billow of carbon dioxide when cars drive by. 

But before the race even begins, the teams will have to put on a performance and ‘blast off’ with an interesting launch mechanism. 

After the race ends at 2PM as the race course will be open to the public for you to snap some IG-worthy pics. Stick around to catch death-defying bicycle stunts by AirDroz Park! You can even take part in a drift scooter and hoverboard race around a mini figure-8 race course.
