The annual event was the first Vancouver Quarter Business Challenge of 2017 and drew a large crowd in St Dominic's square after the flipping action began at 2pm.

The teams from creative design agency Studio 20a and Hayes and Storr Solicitors finished neck and neck in the grand final and, without the use of state-of-the-art technology, opted to share the crown.

Last year's winners, Ward Gethin Archer solicitors, finished third while west Norfolk radio station KLFM and Primark, the 2015 and 2016 overall joint champions, finished fourth and fifth respectively. Wilkinson and Boots completed the list of participants.

'A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our Pancake Racing challenge,' said Vancouver Quarter marketing and events assistant David Blackmore. 'It was a brilliant event.'
