New records were set on Cairngorm Mountain last weekend as 30 brave – some would say foolhardy – teams took part in the 3rd Cairngorm Soapbox Extreme. Powered only by gravity, they raced down the ski road from the Coire na Ciste car park to the Glenmore snow gates reaching speeds in excess of 70mph.

This on-board footage (see below), taken from Centa Bavaria (driven by Andy Ash), shows the final of CSEx2011 and includes breathtaking footage of C12's (Steve Thomas) daring overtake at The Switch and the battle for second place between Centa Bavaria and LG Racing (Lee Wakefield) - watch out for Lee's wheel just sneaking into the shot about 3 frames before the finish line! Brilliant racing from everyone.

Want to be the envy of cartie racers everywhere? Get yourself to eBay and pick up one of our limited edition and exclusive tee shirts. Only £12.50 each plus p&p (or you can collect them on the day and save the postage).
Alternatively, if you want a free tee shirt with an exclusive "Extreme Marshall" design on the back, then volunteer to help out. Marshall's tee shirts are not available for sale and never will be.The only way to get one is to be a CSEx marshall.

With only a month to go until CSEx2011, Bentley have had a disasterous crash in pre-race practice which has left their cartie needing a complete rebuild. Fortunately there were no injuries, but with no time left to build a new chassis they have had to withdraw from the event.
This leaves one place available for anyone brave enough to take on the biggest and most extreme gravity race in the UK.

Although CSEx is now full, there is still chance for you to get involved. We are looking for tow vehicles and drivers and volunteers to help marshall the course from 5 until about 10.30 on Friday 1st and/or Saturday 2nd July.
The duties are quite straightforward and you'll be given a full briefing and all the necessary equipment and you'll also get a great trackside view of the action.
