WHAT IS A “BRICK RACE”? As the name implies, a “Brick Race” involves designing and building a brick racecar that is cleverly mounted on wheels and raced down an inclined track using only gravity to cross the finish line. Our Brick Race will emphasize creativity and the sculptural quality of the racecars as well as making the fastest machine to cross the finish line first. This unique Holyoke event brings together the diverse community of Holyoke and surrounding towns for a day of fun, excitement, and creativity for all to enjoy. To enter a brick in the race, click: 2017 REGISTRATION FORM (The race is limited to 60 brick racers on a first-come basis)
Who can enter?
All interested people, of any age and background, are welcome to register and participate in making a brick racer.
You may enter as an individual or as part of a group with any number of participants to make one racecar.
Entrants do NOT have to be residents of Holyoke, Massachusetts to participate in the competition, and will accept entries from contestants worldwide!
