The streets of London were filled with weird and wacky homemade karts in a Wacky Races-style event held at Alexandra Palace on Sunday.

The Red Bull Soapbox Race hosted elaborately crafted designs which looked like a toaster, strawberry and sewing machine on wheels, lovingly created by the 65 teams competing - also wearing some impressively elaborate costumes - and 20,000 spectators who turned out to watch the race.

Inspired by the home turf of the race, which takes in jumps and turns that may not leave many intact by the finish line, there was even one soapbox inspired by the DLR.

Take a look at some of the best below.
