One of the most notable parts of the series is that it will take place on the world famous Akron Derby Track! Previously only open to derby cars, all that is about to change.
Learn to Luge / Skate days along with Open Track Days will be held on the soap box derby hill itself! The track is suited perfectly for beginners all the way to experienced riders, with top Luge athletes reaching speeds of over 50mph.
Rubber City Gravity Games will feature Downhill Skateboard and Street Luge on a road track on the derby venue site. The slalom skateboard competition will be held at the same time on the derby track itself.
The venue and its facilities are perfectly suited to host small events as well at large international races. Onsite officials’ offices, spectator bleachers seating for thousands, athlete pit areas as well as ample sponsor marketing and booth space are among the many features of the site.
