LONDON, ENGLAND --- There was a soapbox deby race in London Sunday, and in London, they do things a bit differently.

Seventy soapboxes powered only by the force of gravity took on the tricky course in front of 20,000 spectators.

You know it's a different kid of soapbox deby when part of the story is that there were "no serious injuries"

This race includes turns...and ramps...designed to test the drivers and provide maximum thrills for the spectators.

Mac's favorite car is the one towing the waterskiing Queen Elizabeth.

Teams were scored on speed, creativity and showmanship in the event.
