RED BULL SOAPBOX RACE CREATES EXCITEMENT, PEOPLE TAKE TO THE WALLS

RED BULL SOAPBOX RACE CREATES EXCITEMENT, PEOPLE TAKE TO THE WALLS

L.A. has all the ingredients of a perfect creative storm. Known for its diverse, lively, and colorful neighborhoods, LA has served as a growing hotbed for artists and cultural expression. The unearthed energy has manifested an art scene of mysterious and hidden installations that often go unnamed.

One of these artists is Dytch66, the creative mastermind behind a recent wall takeover on Beverly Blvd. in Echo Park, meant to celebrate the return of Red Bull Soapbox Race to Los Angeles after a six-year hiatus.

A few perspectives from Dytch66 on Red Bull Soapbox Race Los Angeles:

What do you think was different about the Red Bull Soapbox project?
I think what inspired me the most to be a part of this project was the freedom to be creative and design my own concept of what the Red Bull Soapbox Race looks like to me.

How has street art influenced how you see the city landscape?
Growing up as a Graffiti Artist in L.A. I’ve always had a love for my city, but it could always look better so I chose to make it my canvas.

Does your wall mural depict the amount of air to be expected by crafts in the 2017 race?
Does my mural match the amount of air that’s going to be seen in this 2017 race? Hell Yeah!!!

RED BULL SOAPBOX RACE RETURNS TO THE CITY OF ANGELS

RED BULL SOAPBOX RACE RETURNS TO THE CITY OF ANGELS

Ready! Set! Go! Red Bull Soapbox Race will return to Los Angeles after a six-year hiatus on August 20 to feature some of the wildest legal street racing around. While the city is well known for its bumper-to-bumper traffic, we are making way this summer and transforming Elysian Park into a bonafide racetrack. 70 teams will be selected to compete in this human-powered racing event, encouraging gear heads and adrenaline junkies alike to break out their toolboxes and build outrageous non-motorized soapboxes designed to thrill the masses. These speed demons will race down Angels Point Road leading them to brave chicanes, hairpin corners and jumps before screeching across the finish line.

CALLING ALL SPEED DEMONS
Have you ever wanted to speed past a crowd of thousands as they cheer you on to victory? If the answer is yes, Red Bull Soapbox Race Los Angeles is calling your name! Teams can enter their engineering marvels and crazy concepts with a formal application, information found at www.redbullsoapboxrace.com starting today. Don’t delay – get that concept submitted ASAP, as applications MUST be submitted by June 16.

Teams will need more than just courage to claim victory on these city streets, as they will be judged on three criteria: creativity, showmanship and speed. So, make it fast, fabulous and fun! Previous events have proven the most outlandish crafts are typically the big winners, so put on your creativity caps and let loose.

DRIVERS, START YOUR HUMAN-POWERED ENGINES

Each soapbox must be powered by gravity and imagination, which means no stored power or external energy sources allowed. And size does matter! All vehicles must not exceed a maximum of six feet wide and twelve feet long, no taller than seven feet, be at least seven inches from the ground, and cannot weigh more than 176 lbs (not including the driver). Drivers, engineers and grease monkeys must be at least 18 years old to be part of the five-person team.

Don’t have the fortitude to put your body on the line? Spectators are welcome to check out the thrills and spills unfold from the sideline, as the event is free to attend.

The Los Angeles event will be the 21st U.S. Red Bull Soapbox Race to ever take place, with the first stateside race held in St. Louis in 2006. The global event dates back to 2000, when it first took place in Belgium, and has since visited almost 50 countries.
