The race is on to win a brand spanking new car as 2008 sees the return of the Vauxhall Beatboxing Championships.

The future UK Beatbox Champion and their voicebox will have to compete in a series of one to one ‘8 Mile’ style contests to take the title and the competition kicks off with the heats taking place in four regions across the UK.

The Leeds heat will take place on 20th February at Mine at 10pm.

The vocal victors will then face-off in London’s Grand Final at Islington Carling Academy June 13th.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, get those vocal chords revved up, head down to Mine and prove you’ve got the verbal virtuosity to become The Vauxhall UK Beatbox Champion 2008.
