A Grand Prix of a different kind took place over the weekend in a muddy field in southeast England.
The annual British Grand Prix for Lawnmower Racing draws crowds of enthusiasts from around Britain, many touting it the best race of the season.
'Personally I love it. The wetter the better, but yeah it's a skill to ride in the mud. It's not as fast, and obviously it's a lot harder to control the machine in the wet,' racer Daniel Johns told Reuters.
The Grand Prix's entrants are split into three mower categories; large tractor, sit-on buggy and machines with a grass-cutting box at the front.
The track is made up of two fields, in front of a pub with a hedge splitting the circuits.
As racers compete in a series of sprints around the track over the course of the race weekend they accumulate points until the top dog is finally crowned.
The winner of the grass-box mower category Ian Ratcliffe said, 'It's competitive, but it's all good-natured and everybody gets on with everybody else, and basically it's just good fun, good healthy sport.'
