Thousands enjoy 'most popular soap box derby yet' as karts race through Hunstanton

It was a case of wacky races in Hunstanton on Sunday as thousands turned out to watch the annual Searles Soap Box Derby.

The Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo, Thomas the Tank Engine, and a pirate ship were among the handmade karts that zoomed through the town’s streets, which more people than ever before enjoyed.

This year, the course, which started at the town hall and finished near the bandstand, was dubbed as “new and faster” – but after one kart, by the King’s Lynn Police Cadets, flipped over during its first run, the ramp part of the course was removed for safety reasons for the second run.
