Thirty radio controlled car fanatics came together at March Raceway on Sunday to race and raise funds for charity.
Categories at the event, in aid of the Fund for Oval Racing Drivers and Staff (FORDS), included unlimited bangers, short wheel base bangers and saloons.
FORDS supports racers, staff and media people while they can’t work due to a racing injury.
Chairman Mike Chilvers said: “It went very well we had a number of visiting drivers as well as club members.
“We are a club which races most Fridays and welcomes all ages - we range from six to 76.”
