A Suffolk village was transformed into a race track when residents raced each other on their homemade soap box cars.
Around 25 competitors took part in the fifth annual Chediston Down Hill Soapbox Derby on Sunday.
The thrilling event was held at Herne Hill Farm and Tom Wells took the top honours after clocking an unbeaten 29.75secs in his Lambi Bighorn II.
Jo Wareham, owner of Herne Hill Farm, said it was a “fantastic” event which brought out the community.
She said: “Everyone who attended had a great time.
