Milwaukee Grand Prix
Description: The Power Racing Series challenges teams to build a car starting with a toy Power Wheels vehicle and a budget of $500, and then race it against other teams in a blaze of glory and occasional electrical fires. Along the way teams get creative with a variety of motors, controllers, and battery choices. There’s no budget restriction on safety, so teams can go crazy with brakes, bumpers, and other devices that prevent danger from rearing its ugly head.
There will be qualifying time trials, as well as a performance skit(?) and two sprint races on Saturday, and then a grueling 75 minute endurance race on Sunday.
