Homemade go-karts of all colours, shapes and sizes can be seen haring along Madeira Drive in Brighton, as Scouts compete for first place.
From the collection of:
Follow the progress of the Orpington Scouts' car 'Pathfinder III'. From set-up and sandwiches in the pits, inspection by white-coated officials to peddling like mad over the finish line and the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd. The day closes with a slower paced procession of the cars and a prize-giving. And while the team may not go home with a prize, it's the taking part that counts.
