Death Star Sets Course for San Francisco

Soapbox race coming to Dolores Park

Nothing says, "Have you settled your affairs?" like racing down the streets of San Francisco in the Death Star. 

Another option would be racing in a Rubik's Cube

Those two, plus 31 other soapbox cars will be taking part in this weekend's Red Bull Soapbox Race. 

In all there will be thirty-three teams. 

Each soapbox must be homemade. 

Gravity will drive the teams down Dolores Street from 21st Street to 18th.

That's three blocks of thrills and hopefully no spills.

Brakes are mandatory. 

The competition starts at 1 p.m. 

Admission is free.
