Team Brooklands Special win Red Bull Soapbox Race
After a day of manic soapbox derby action at Alexandra Palace, the vintage-themed racers come out victorious.
The team stunned the crowds with their vintage-themed dance routine, earning a near-perfect performance score from the judges – snowboarder Katie Ormerod, racing driver Andrew Jordan, grime artist Blakie and 2015 Red Bull Soapbox Race podium finisher Tony Whitelaw – before rocking down the hill in a lickety-split 35.39 seconds.
We thought there must have been a mistake
"It’s a bit surreal really," said Team Brooklands Special driver Keith Rose after the win. "We thought we’d like to be in the top 10. Then there were rumours that were in the top three… Then they said we’d won! We thought there must have been a mistake… "
Meanwhile the People’s Choice award, voted for by the public, went to Team Must Dash and their incredible Lancaster Bomber soapbox racer.
