Red Bull Racing Can, Hyderabad
September 16, 2012: Fancy constructing your own racing team? Take the first step towards your motorsport dream by constructing your own remote control car at Red Bull Racing Can. After a phenomenal response in 2011, the second edition of Red Bull Racing Can is all set to zip across the corridors of your college!
Red Bull Racing Can is a college racing series, where the youth of the city show-off their fresh talent. It is a worldwide event, where 24 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 makes the difference. And that's where tin metal joins the race! The body, aerodynamic features and design is made of the Red Bull cans.
This unique competition challenges both an engineers' genius and petrol-heads nerves, compelling the participants to play the pit crew as well as the racer. So step on the accelerator and navigate your car through corners of the racing track in tricky and daring overtaking maneuvers to become the Indian Red Bull Racing Can champion!
Starting on 21st September in Pune, Red Bull Racing Can will travel to Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata. The national finals will take place in October, 2012 in Mumbai. The winning team of the national finals will then represent India at the global finals during the Brazilian Grand Prix, at Sao Paulo.
However, it's not enough to be the first across the finish line, like Sebastian Vettel. One also needs to be an outstanding racer. Points are also awarded based on creativity and how cool your mates think your design is. These points could determine the starting position on the grid for the team, which is extremely crucial! Because when it comes to the scores in this race, a CAN, can make a difference!
