The Moon Buggy was a surprise entry, and hadn’t even registered when the race started. Its water entry was delayed while paperwork was hastily completed.
The tires worked considerably better than last year, and the steering mechanism with a separate hand-cranked differential is quite impressive. It had gone
less than a mile before the slow-moving vehicle triangle on the back was bent from hitting the ground. While unsuitable for
long-distance travel, this craft had the most distinctive chassis at the race. It won Worst Honorable Mention, for “the Sculpture whose half-baked theoretical ‘engineering’ did not deter its Pilot from the challenge of the race.”
