Today saw the 9th annual soap box derby to be held at Hinckley, Leicestershire. 43 teams and individuals competing in time trials (and over jumps and a chicane) to find the fastest soap box of the day. Pictured are team 'Top-Gun' getting off to a flying start and as it turned out a safe landing.

You'd be subject to the same higway code as everyone else, so would need to obey all road signs,  speed limits, etc.
