Twenty eight crazy contraptions raced through Mundesley village centre at the weekend, in a soapbox derby organised by local Scouts and their leaders.
The event, which was hosted for the third year running by the 1st Mundesley Air Scouts, included child, adult and parent and child races, with carts taking part ranging from a bath tub and a pirate ship, to a Flintstone's-inspired footmobile and a 'Mundesley Cheese Weasel' dragster.
Group Scout leader Jamie Coleman, said the derby - a village tradition reintroduced by the Scouts in 2014 after a 10 year break - had raised more than £1300 for Scouting funds, including a £300 donation from North Walsham Roundtable.
'It has just grown year on year and we had the biggest crowd we've seen for a long while this time,' he added. 'It's a great laugh and it is nice to see that kind of fantastic community spirit where everyone wants to get involved.'
