LDD Racing for Cornwall Hospice Care

Cornwall Motorfest Soapbox Race

LDD has unveiled its latest engineering project, our very own soapbox racing car (Dylan). Dylan is modelled on an NW500 offshore drilling pipe normally associated with our offshore downhole drilling equipment. Weighing in at 123kg (excluding driver), Dylan is based on a modified 1980’s Dingo off-road buggy chassis complete with Lambretta wheels, racing seat and an LDD trailing flag. Dylan will be racing at the Cornwall Motorfest Soapbox Race, Stithians showground on Saturday 4th August.

Tiernan Richards has been appointed lead racing driver for the event having successfully completed his first year (level 2) of his apprenticeship at Cornwall College.

All proceeds will be going to the Cornwall Hospice Care charity.

Best Wishes,

The LDD team
