2017 West Auckland Soap Box Derby Sunday the 2nd of April at Westgate Massey Library
West Auckland soap box Derby 2017 is coming
An ideal opportunity to bring businesses and schools together with an element of fun and education, for the benefit of the local community.
In April 2017 Waitakere Rotary are holding their 14th annual West Auckland Soap Box Derby, along Westgate Drive.
Waitakere Rotary organises the event, owns the cars and supplies any required spare parts.
Schools, with the help of sponsors, pay an entry fee to enter the event.
Sponsors work in partnership with their nominated local school – a number of our sponsors have developed a mutually beneficial on-going partnership with their school.
The students assemble the car, paint it in the sponsors and school colours and logos, and race it on behalf of the sponsor.
Sites are available on race day for both schools and sponsors for displays and school fund raising stalls.
Sponsors receive ongoing acknowledgement of their support through all media releases prior to and on the race day, together with advertising space on one of the road barriers.
Once the races are complete the sponsors have use of the car until December for promotional purposes.
The profit from the event is returned to the community through Rotary programs
