1.Entrants must build a racecar vehicle to transport a common building brick as the main component. A common brick is approximately 8 inches in length x 4 inches in width x 2.5 inches in height and weighs between 4 and 5 pounds.
2. Since the racecars will travel down an inclined plane using gravity only, you may not use any
extra motors or propulsion systems that would aid the speed of the racecar.
3. You may use any materials to build the racecar including painting the brick. You may not use sharp, hazardous or flammable materials, and we reserve the right to ban any racecar that the judges deem to be dangerous.
4. To fit on the track, the total size of the racecar, including the brick, cannot exceed 10 inches in width, 18 inches in length and 15 inches in height. (You may include lighter artistic elements over 15”)
5. The total weight of the brick racecar, including the brick and all materials attached to it, should not exceed 15lbs in total weight. We’ll get you the full description of the Brickrace with entry form and other details later.
