Drivers of miniature race cars from across the UK took part in the annual Presto Park Slot Car Club classic event on the weekend.
The meeting started with practice with drivers fine-tuning their cars for the races.
On Sunday, November 25 doors opened early at the club's headquarters on Pound Farm, Hevingham with vehicles taking part based on Formula 1 models, Can-Am cars and Group 5 Sports cars, dating from the 1960s until the early 1980s.
Mike Harvey, club owner, said: 'Richard Mack from Billericay, Essex took the Formula 1 award, Mike Thomson from Peterborough, the Group 5 sports award, and Mick Kerr, from Cambridge, the Can-Am award.
'James Hancock, the driver from Presto Park, came second in the main Formula 1 event, a well-deserved place up against so much national and international talent.
