Dozens of thrill-seekers took to the track for a day of broken wheels and crashes with hay bales.
The first Mundesley Air Scout Group hosted the annual Mundesley Soapbox Derby on Saturday, July 20 on High Street and in Gold Park.
First held more than 30 years ago, the event saw children and adults take to the track in weird and wonderful contraptions.
Group scout leader Anna Hollis said the derby, which raised funds for a climbing wall and storage at the group's headquarters, promised to provide fun for all the family.
She added: "I was so amazed to see a great turnout to our Annual Soapbox Derby.
