Weird and wonderful vehicles at the Red Bull Soapbox Race

Some 65 home-made machines hurtled down a 420-metre course at Alexandra Palace in north London.Only their equally home-made brakes stood between them and a momentous crash in front of 20,000 spectators.

The People’s Choice Award was won by Turtle Heads, a team from Coventry consisting of driver Kevin Thomas, 28, his brother Danny Thomas, 30, Sam Wright, 29, and Andrea Popovic, 25.

They were taking part for the first time in a soapbox racer based on Crush, the sea turtle in Finding Nemo.
