Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2011 Race Report: The PolyGnomials



Here's a Sculpture!
< Previous Page Next Page >

The PolyGnomials

The PolyGnomials from the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute high school started the race with a modest supply of art, but as you’ll see, by the time they got to the mud all that remained were their red gnome helmet covers.

(We’re unsure why the paramilitary squad from a suburban police department wore battle dress uniforms and brought their assault vehicle. Perhaps classified CIA intelligence reports indicate stateside infiltration by anti-kinetic sculpture race militias.)

Harbor waters can be chilly.

At the water entry, the sculpture somewhat disintegrated, plunging the pilots into the harbor. It appears to lack sufficient pontoon buoyancy.

After lurching through the sand and flying over the handlebars, the pilots exclaimed “We didn’t taco!” referring to the tendency of wheels to collapse like taco shells under lateral stress.
