A 14-year-old from Deanshanger emerged victorious at the Brackley Soapbox Derby at the weekend.

Samuel Walker had competed in the prestigious event for the previous five years, but this time he finally managed to win the U15 event after finishing first in all three races and therefore having the best overall record.

He will return again in 2014, but this time will make the step up to the adult event.

Brother Kristian, 16, finished fourth in the adult race this year.
