Get your racer ready

The Langley Community Club is planning another exciting Soupbox Derby for Saturday, Sept. 18. Applications are available at the Chamber office and at City Hall.
The event will start Saturday at 9 a.m. when racers meet at U.S. Bank in Langley for the inspection of their racers. The derby will include a parade to showcase the vehicles and their pit crews.

The Langley Community Club has been putting on the race in recent years, but the race gets its name from one of its early sponsors, the former Langley restaurant the Soup Co-op which put on the first race in 1972.
