Commenting on the event, Guy Martin, world-class road racer said: “I am really excited to be a part of the TrustFord Soap Box Derby at this year’s Oyster Festival in Hillsborough, it should be mega. When I was a kid I was right into building stuff and tuning engines, I’d even sit on my Dad’s work bench in a nappy and watch him. I’m looking forward to seeing what some of these youngsters can come up with.”
