Last year's Hunstanton Soap Box Derby saw 38 competitors create karts in many wacky shapes including the Robin Reliant from Only Fools and Horses, a kitchen sink and a lemon

This year's event will take place on Sunday September 22.

The event has been running in the town since 1953 and features four age categories, 10-12 years, 13-15 years, adults and veteran (over 65s).

Last year saw the RNLI win the adults category, Team Richardson Racing 2 win the veteran and Imperial Leathered win the Concours d'elegance award for best looking kart.
