Red Bull Dragsterday - Human-Powered Drag Racing
The first Red Bull Dragsterday event will be held on September 10th of this year and, for now, the proposed location is Detroit. Applications must be sent, along with a sketch of your dragster, before June 15th. The rules are simple: Your dragster must be human powered (by up to 5 people), less than 6 feet wide and 20 feet long (!) and created by yourself. The dragsters will be judged on speed (duh) and creativity (that's good!), and prizes of $7500, $3000 and $1500 will go to the top three dragsters. There's also a people's choice prize, but it's still unknown what it will be ("a mystery wrapped inside an enigma"). the whole thing promises to be a load of fun for everybody involved, so what are you waiting for?
