Red Bull Racing Can 2012 MEA
Red Bull Racing Can is a university racing series. 12 teams compete per location on a set course with custom remote control cars. But to ensure fair play, the chassis of all cars are the same. It's the body of the racers, aerodynamics and particularly design that make the difference. And that's where tin metal joins the race! The body, aerodynamic features and design will be made of Red Bull cans. Because when it comes to the scores in this race, a can can make a difference!
It's the challenge for engineering geniuses and daredevil-racers alike. Use your engineering skills to create an outstanding remote control racer. Hit the asphalt and navigate your car through the corners of the track in tricky and daring overtaking manoeuvres to become the Australian Red Bull Racing Can champion!
However, it's not enough to be the first across the finish line. Points will also be awarded based on creativity and how cool your mates think your design is, by them ‘liking' the pic you upload on the Red Bull Race Can Facebook page, prior to your event. These points could determine your starting position on the grid!
The overall champions will be flown to the Red Bull Racing headquarters in Milton Keynes, UK, where they will compete with the national champs from 24 other countries in the Red Bull Racing Can World Final.
