Soap Box Grand Prix - North of England
Action from The Soap Box Grand Prix, which is a race that takes place in the north of England. All the vehicles are made up of old bath tubs, scrap metal and odd bits of wood. The whole village turns out to cheer the drivers on. The drivers range from dustman to the bank-manager.
