This October 18th, Red Bull Soapbox Race will make its San Francisco debut as more than 30 teams of gear heads and auto amateurs speed down Dolores Street in their homemade, human-powered vehicles in a race against the clock. Teams will be judged on four criteria – speed (of course), the creativity of their car and showmanship and the quality of their performance prior to crossing the starting line.
