DAREDEVIL riders will be returning to Purton for the village's second soapbox race on Sunday, September 15.

Up to 20 karts will be taking part in the event, which is raising money for local charities.

Those who have already signed up are keeping their vehicle designs a closely guarded secret.

But if last year's karts are anything to go by, they will be pretty spectacular.

These included a mini WW1 aircraft and a sausage on wheels.

Fifteen teams have already signed up, but there's room for five more, so if you fancy building your own motorless wacky racing car, now's your chance.

The track covers the hill between Hinton and Purton and will include two jumps and a 'water splash'.

Spectators are welcome to come along and cheer on the carefully crafted carts as they hurtle down the hill.

This year's competition very nearly didn't happen due to a huge hike in insurance costs for the event, but a solution has been found and it is now going ahead as planned.

Entry costs £20. For more details and to take part email Phil at: jockeydoc@me.com or visit: purtonsoapbox.co.uk
