Boxes of delight

The Richards Castle Soap Box Derby was a hot and sunny affair this year. Twenty-seven soap boxes compete in the 15th annual race, and the 550m course, which has a vertical drop of 50m, saw some spectacular racing, with the top five teams completing the course within two seconds of each other.

Reigning champion C12, driven by Steve Thomas, claimed the top spot for the fastest cart, while Best Novelty Cart went to Team Chuckle from Wigmore, who engineered an aeroplane soapbox with working propeller (pictured).
