A POPULAR Krazy Races event is coming to Warrington this weekend.

Thousands of spectators are set to gather in the town centre to cheer on crazy, wacky, and outrageous soapbox downhill racers at Warrington Krazy Races.

The teams, of which there will be more than 40, will launch themselves through town in their carefully hand-crafted karts, with racers set to tackle the track with chicanes, obstacles, water and more.

There will be a main winner’s trophy for first place, but there’ll also be prizes for the likesofshowmanship, innovation and best dressed.

Competitors will make their way through a knock-out style competition with only the fastest 10 cars making it through to the final.

Organised by Warrington Business Improvement District (BID), in partnership with Sarah Belcher Events Ltd, the event will take place on Father's Day, Sunday, June 16.

Races will be launching themselves from the Guardians, known as the skittles, on Market Gate, with a ramp taking racers down Bridge Street in their carefully hand-crafted karts our racers will tackle our track with chicanes, obstacles, water and more.
