The incredible rocket-powered go kart

Meet Colin Furze, a mad inventor from Stamford, Lincolnshire.

Colin creates stuff in his garage. Not normal stuff, like bookcases or spiceracks. No. He makes working Wolverine claws60mph mobility scooters, and the world's fastest pram.

Now, the 32-year-old plumber-by-trade has created his ultimate machine. A rocket powered go-kart.

The video below shows Colin - who loves prancing around like a sugar-soaked eight-year-old - taking his latest invention for a test drive at what appears to be a local airfield (a sensible move, given the flames it chucks out the back).

Suffice to say, you don't see his rocket-powered kart go round any corners. Though we fear Colin may have gone round the bend himself some time ago.
