Teams will be competing for racing glory in a north Norfolk coastal village, with the return of the soap box derby.

The event has gained popularity over the past couple of years and is back again on Saturday, July 1.

Last year’s event took the seaside village of Mundesley by surprise when hundreds of supporters and enthusiasts flocked to see amazing three and four-wheeled speed machines being peddled and pushed down the High Street.

Over £1,000 was raised last year for charity, and Anna Hollis, one of the organisers, predicts an even more successful event this year.

Various teams, of all ages, compete for prizes with specially designed soap box wheelies taking part encouraged by the spectators during the fun-day, which starts at noon when the main village street is closed to traffic.
