Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2015 Race Report: Flying Burrito



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

Flying Burrito

Taking a form of a giant winged foodstuff, Flying Burrito was constructed by its hometown Baltimore team out of cheap department store bikes, slotted angle steel, beans, rice, and guacamole. The structure held together for the start.

But as Anuli the Articulated Giraffe headed toward land, Flying Burrito was collapsing.

Shown at left, wooden structural members crumbled on the water. To the right, a tortilla-free victory was celebrated at the sand.

With not much burrito left as pit crew pushed through mud in the blazing heat, Flying Burrito went on to win Worst Honorable Mention, which the rules specify is “given to the Sculpture whose half-baked theoretical ‘engineering’ did not deter its Pilot(s) from the challenge of the race.”
