Thai farmers compete in high octane plough racing championships

Thai farmers take part in a paddy field racing competition - standing on their petrol powered ploughs.

The competitors used modified machines with platforms attached to the back, allowing them to skim along the surface of the water.

Drone footage shows how the men raced from one end of a flooded field to the other in Samut Prakan, Thailand, on Sunday (April 7).

The winner was the farmer who could cover the distance fastest without falling off.
