Hunstanton Soap Box Derby

18th September 2017

What an amazing day in Hunstanton, over 1000 people turned out in the sunshine to see around 40 go-karts endure 340 metres of Hunstanton tarmac in the Soap Box Derby.  There were many Father/Son creations, team efforts and more of all descriptions and efforts.  Some of the creations had months and months of blood and sweat while others were made just a couple of days before.  Each and every go-kart was unique as you can see in the video below, however one group of racers from the Pocahontas Players made quite possible the biggest entrance of the lot....  If you're saw the crash at the start of the Singapore Grand Prix yesterday that had nothing on them!  Watch the second video below to see for yourself, somehow they walked away with only a grazed arm!
