We’re having an Autumn desk clear out here at Dirt-HQ and are giving YOU the chance to win a stunning BOX full of AMAZING random NIC-NACS.

You name it and it’ll be inside this BOX.

All you have to do to win this awesome prize is think outside the BOX and make something creative out of a CARDBOARD BOX take a photo of it and send it to my in-BOX Billy

See below for an idea of what to make.

The amazingly beautiful big box brimming with booty that money just can’t buy, well not unless you’ve got a spare £7.32p.

You can make something like…Dai Robot…

…maybe something like this…

…but maybe a bit more than this.

The entries so far:

Donald Hanson “I feel a wee explanation may be required….drunken evening in a mates attic ended up in us making 2 robot people ’embracing’ one another, and then somehow a robot dog got involved….twisted? dodgy? most certainly…..I have no come back…”

Jamaican bobsled, from cardboard Portsmouth Uni – Went down a storm never high fived so many people in my life.

Patrick Puxley

Nico Rossi

Dave “Daniels’ main ambition in life is to own a full face helmet, until we can find one to fit a 4 year old this will have to do (don’t worry there is a ‘real’ helmet under there).”

Graham Taylor “One is of me being a bit of a dick-head with a box and the others are of the surprise upgrade we performed on my mates Toyota Corrosion. It didn’t make it any faster.”

Richard Betts “My friend moved to Tauranga in New Zealand, a notorious town for boy racer cars so we thought he need to fit in better. 20″chromes bro and a ferrari scuderia inspired rear end”

Tom Hastings

Clint Timmis “Thought I’d send you the progress so far of what I was constructing…a bit of an all round experiment really. Hopefully finish it tomorrow by constructing the final swing arm brackets and modelling the rear shock. (yeah… I watched way too much Blue Peter as a kid!)

Caption would be: Can’t afford the bike, but can afford the box!”

Daniel Gibson “I raced like this last winter – surprisingly, I came in the top third!
Bit tricky to pedal though and couldn’t see anything closer than 8 feet away at floor level – it made gapping the doubles a tad ballsy!”

Alex Boreham with his Trojan horse for a spartan themed social.

John the Robot.

Conrad Taylor: “This was a Halloween costume. Made from numerous boxes it took many hours to make but I think it was well worth it! ”

Trish Bromley: “I have recently moved back to Toronto for school
after 15 months in Whistler and I am clearly going through bike park withdrawal, a cardboard “Boneyard” isn’t the same as the real thing, but I hope you enjoy!”

JonnyBMX: “Check out my pack man costume took quite a long time to make! got so drunk i was sick over it!”

Douglas Johnstonbaugh and his amazing homemade cardboard chair.

Rob McC: “…we decided that for the last day in Morzine, our mates monsterous BMW required fairings…please see the HONDA RN02 prototype…”

Gareth Thomas and his Ipod Halloween Costume

Adam “Rubiks” Pagett

Nick Hamilton and Rodders “… big parcels that dont look like bikes so we would be allowed to take em on the train! Fucking London to Brighton nazis!! How were we to know they weren’t letting bikes on trains that day… all we wanted to do was get to Chicksands!!!”

Matt Wells: “This is my beautiful creation i made for BUCS 09 – look at the quality!”

Alex Sharp: “A crud catcher made from cardboard!!! on my specialized p2 with a dirt mag header on the side. Held together by cable ties like most things on the bike :-)”

Jeremy Bigg: “As the current government has decided to cut the defence budget, i have decided to make a new aircraft for the military:Pictures of its first flight out of the hanger and also it’s easy storage…..”
