A new racing sensation has arrived - a motorised shopping trolley that can reach nearly 65 km/h (40 mph)!
44-year old Colin Boness, from Bedfordshire, fitted a motorbike engine to a normal shopping trolley, weighted the front down and hit the race track.
He knows that some people might think he looks a bit odd. He said: "At work they call me the wally in the trolley".
He made the contraption to raise money for multiple sclerosis charities, and plans to test it on a drag track.
A bit embarrassing
It's all a bit embarrassing for Colin's daughter Tammy, who actually works in the local supermarket.
She said: "I think he's a bit insane really. As he gets older he seems to get younger".
Colin's super-charged shopping cart hits Northamptonshire's drag racing
track on Sunday.
