Ærøskøbing Grand Prix

Join us when the streets of Ærøskøbing are transformed into the traditional Ærøskøbing Grand Prix.

Every year, children from all over Denmark, and a few from abroad, participate in the Ærøskøbing Grand Prix, a popular soapbox race with an increasing number of participants each year.

That's not a problem, because that just means more soapbox cars are built. All the cars are built on Ærø, sponsored by Ærø companies and a single sponsor from Funen.

One by one, the children (aged 8 to 16 years) drive, carried only by the speed that the high ramp gives them - and driving skills!

The race can be run on a single day, or every day, from Monday to Friday throughout week 42.
