Soap box derby features wacky inventions, crash landings

Posted: Updated:

An array of unusually designed vehicles took part in the Red Bull Soap Box Race in London Sunday.

70 soap boxes powered only by the force of gravity took on the tricky course in front of 20,000 spectators

Some of the competitors crashed into straw barriers after losing control on the ramps, but no one was seriously injured.  Others demonstrated impressive skill to make it to the finish line smoothly. 

Teams were scored on speed, creativity and showmanship organizers call it the World's Wackiest Road Race.
