Red Bull Soapbox Race: What exactly is it?

As reported by us earlier, Red Bull describes its soapbox race as the “pinnacle of non-motor-racing”, in typical tongue-in-cheek manner. These races are global events held on mainly city courses with the same concept. 

Participants are local amateur entrants that need to build vehicles powered by gravity and leg muscles. The brakes and steering, however, need to be fully functional. The teams will have to build their racer, go to the top of a slope, and let gravity do its thing.

The event will be hosted by some of the popular comedians like Jordanian, Sahiba Bali, Rohan Joshi and Aaditya Kulshreshth among others.

Twelve teams are participating in this year’s event that will see six judges in total. These include Harith Noah, Tara Sachdev, Ankit Panth, Manpreet Singh, Lalremsiami and Ocean Sharma.

FanCode F1 streaming in India


F1 fans in India now have a more affordable alternative to F1TV Pro.

Indian sports streaming platform FanCode has acquired the rights to stream F1 in India. This is part of a two-year deal that will cover the 2024 and 2025 seasons.

F1’s broadcasting agreement with Sport Sports, which also included streaming on Hotstar, expired at the end of the 2022 season, leaving the sport without any TV broadcast in India. Instead, F1TV was made available for a hefty annual fee of Rs 2,999. The new deal with FanCode now gives Indian fans a far more affordable alternative.

FanCode to stream F1, F2 and F3

FanCode will stream all F1 practice, qualifying and sprint events, along with the main Grands Prix. Along with this, the platform will also stream F2 and F3 here.

“I am delighted to announce that fans in India will be able to watch F1 on FanCode for the next two seasons. We have found a strong broadcast partner in them with expert knowledge on how we can best serve our 60 million existing fans and reach new audiences in India. Together, we will take our combined expertise to produce premium content that showcases the sporting spectacle that is F1.,” said Ian Holmes, director of media rights and content creation at Formula 1.

FanCode F1 price, subscription plans

FanCode offers multiple packages for those interested. There first of these is a race weekend pass, covering all the sessions for one round, for a price of Rs 49. The subscription for one full season costs Rs 599.

There’s also an unlimited live stream pass (covering other sports like cricket, football and more) for Rs 999 annually and Rs 199 monthly.

All the races will be streamed with Sky Sports F1 commentary.

Where can you watch FanCode?

Subscribers can watch the races live on FanCode’s website, as well their Android and iOS apps. For TV streaming, apps are available for Android TV, JioTV and Amazon Fire TV.

Streaming is allowed on four devices simultaneously per account.

Is F1TV still available in India?

F1TV is still available in India for the time being, but subscription prices for that are a lot more costly at USD 29.99 (about Rs 2,480) for a year or $3.99 (approximately Rs 330) for a month.

But that subscription does come with the added benefit of live timing data, watching F1’s pre- and post-race analysis, all driver onboard cameras and even archival content.
