BOX “KEEP OFF THE BRAKE AND USE MOTOREX SPRAY…” The air was thick with nervous excitement before the start of the First Oberaargau Soapbox Grand Prix in late May 2018. Many of the 74 big and little (7 years and up) drivers were competing in a soapbox derby for the first time. The race was organized by the ToKJO children’s and youth center in Langenthal and the Swiss Soapbox Club (SSK). The starting ramp was located a stone’s throw away from Thunstetten Castle near Langenthal. The weather was perfect and the sound of the starting gun unmistakable, launching a wild ride down the mountain road toward Bützberg at speeds of up to 60 kph. Before the first heat many of the avid young racers had built their own soapbox cars. The whole family became part of the team, with the occasional hammer blow landing on a stray finger instead of hitting the nail on the head – ouch! Fortunately the race, cushioned by over 200 hay bales, took place without incident. One of the successful young drivers had this insider tip to share: “Just keep off the brake and oil the bearings with MOTOREX before starting!” • www.tokjo.ch © Tacita Watch the video: youtu.be/0Z2DT_uFMok DID YOU KNOW… TACITA GOES WITH MOTOREX FOR ELECTRIC Italian electric motorcycle builder Tacita is all about torque and speed.
