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.
