The goal is to build a fast racing car that will record the fastest time on the course. However, sturdiness, decoration and originality are also important points.
Every team has the same materials for building the racing car. In the shop, the participants find extra material for decorating the vehicle. The teams are given a maximum of three hours to build their racing cars based on a photo manual. The cars are tested for sturdiness and safety. And then the actual race begins. Ready! Set! Go!
Why build a racing car if you’re not going to race it? The teams are given four test laps during the building of their vehicles, plus two timed laps. Whoever clocks the fastest lap time wins the race.
