About Rocketcar Day

Rocketcar Day is a participatory event in which we build little cars out of anything they can, power them with model rocket engines and race to find out who gets the farthest.

It’s (essence/attraction/appeal) is in it’s unique blend of stupidity and applied physics (or perhaps applied genius and intuitive engineering).

You can build a car beforehand, giving you time to test concepts and theories of how best to create a straight, fast running car which can handle the power of the rocket engine.... or build one in the supplied workshop on the day using whatever creative powers you have at hand. Bring along something and see if you can turn it into a car. The RCD workshop will provide some materials and access to rocket engines and launchers (and some sage advice as well.)

If you don't want to build and race, come be an innocent bystander. The sight of multiple cars barreling haphazardly down the track is invigorating to say the least. When combined with plumes of acrid smoke and the feeling of imminent doom, it will have you ducking for cover and grinning from ear to ear.

The rocket engines provide a 6 second blast of power, after which the car is at the mercy of sheer luck and the competing forces of physics.
